Sir Wally Herbert was regarded as the doyen of polar explorers, and one of the few remaining links we had to that period of history known as the ‘Heroic Age’ of polar exploration. As a prize-winning author and an artist of great talent he was, without question, the man best suited (through his lyrical text and his evocative images) to capture the spirit of the polar world, its wildlife and its native people. As a polar traveller in particular his record was outstanding and totally unique. During the course of his polar career (which spanned almost 50 years), Wally Herbert spent 15 years in the wilderness regions of the polar world, and travelled with dog teams and open boats well over 25,000 miles - more than half of that distance through unexplored areas that no human being had set foot on before.
