The crossing : conquering the Atlantic in the world's toughest rowing race by James Cracknell ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 212 libraries worldwide
When James Cracknell and Ben Fogle decided to compete in the Atlantic Rowing Race, they faced three thousand miles of empty ocean, stormy weather and colossal physical stress. As the enormity of their undertaking became apparent, winning the race was going to be the least of their worries. Forty-nine days later Cracknell and Fogle were the first pair to cross the finishing line, having pushed themselves physically, psychologically and emotionally to the limit. They had survived without water rations, lost their clothes, capsized, hallucinated, played games, wept, fought, grown beards, nursed blisters and rowed 2,930 miles. THE CROSSING is the extraordinarily honest account of James Cracknell and Ben Fogle's epic race, one that forced both men to face the truth about themselves and each other.

Offshore : in search of an island of my own by Ben Fogle ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"Islands have always held a peculiar fascination for Ben Fogle. Inspired by their solitude and escapism, he sets his heart on finding one of his own." "After failed attempts to buy his retreat, he starts looking. It's a search that takes him on a journey along the UK's coastline to some of Britain's least well-known but most fascinating extremities. Along the way he discovers communities still living by sixteenth-century laws, meets the king of a country founded on an abandoned floating fort, and attempts to launch a full-scale invasion on a forbidden island with a [pound]12.99 Mr Incredible inflatable dinghy." "In the end his only hope, it seems, might lie on a barren windswept crag of black rock in the middle of the North Atlantic." "Islands evacuated, islands forgotten, islands left behind by time. Ben's offshore adventure takes him in search of inspiration from those who have made their home on the periphery of our society. And just maybe, somewhere along the way, he might discover an island all of his very own."--BOOK JACKET.
Race to the Pole by James Cracknell ( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 147 libraries worldwide
For the first time since Scott's ill-fated race to Antarctica against Amundsen in 1913, a handful of teams from around the world have been granted permission to race each other, on foot, across Antarctica starting on New Year's Day and dragging their food, their tents (and their rubbish) with them. This time, however, two hardnut Norwegian teams will be up against double-Olympic Gold medallist James Cracknell and TV presenter Ben Fogle. In 2005 James and Ben rowed the Atlantic together (16 hours a day at the oars, for 50 days). This time, they tackle a challenge that is hard wired into the British psyche: the race for the pole. And in a last minute twist, they will also be taking with them a member of the public as their third team member.

Double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell, TV presenter Ben Fogle and Doctor Ed Coats compete in one of the world's greatest challenges ? the 2009 race to the South Pole - the first organised race since Scott and Amundsen almost 100 years ago. The challenge they face is immense: a 500 mile cross country skiing race to the South Pole, on the windiest, coldest, highest and driest continent in the world; winds of almost 50 and 100mph, constant daylight, temperatures as low as minus 50oc and a steadily increasing altitude up to the equivalent of 4,000m. If that wasn't enough, they must survive each other's company, day in and day out, for up to 45 days. And on top of that, they have to train their bodies to face the harshest conditions known to man, pull a sled behind them weighing almost 170lbs, escape deadly crevasses, stuff their bodies with over 6,000 calories a day, and ski for up to 18 hours a day. Have they got what it takes to win the race?

"A team of volunteer cosmetic surgeons travel to Ethiopia to treat child victims of the shocking tropical disease Noma, which eats away at their face. The disease, caused by malnutrition, kills thousands of poor African children every year and those who survive are left horribly disfigured.
