Five British men in an open, rigid inflatable boat fighting for their lives in perhaps the most dangerous seas in the world. Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2004, this is the compelling account of the most recent adventure of the bestselling author of Facing Up.It started out as a carefully calculated attempt to complete the first unassisted crossing of the frozen north Atlantic in a rigid inflatable boat. It became a terrifying battle against storm-force winds, crashing waves and icebergs as large as cathedrals. Starting from the remote north Canadian coastline, Grylls and his crew crossed the infamous Labrador Sea, pushed on through ice-strewn waters to Greenland and then found themselves isolated in a perfect storm 400 miles from Iceland. Compelling, vivid and inspirational, Facing the Frozen Ocean will appeal to all Bear Grylls' many readers and win him many more.

"'An epic story of hardship, friendship and faith' Daily Telegraph '[Grylls'] writing allows you to feel you are sitting alongside him on his adventure... I could taste the salt spray in every sentence and the bone numbing chill in every paragraph' Herald Express 'Grylls is certainly proof that the age of great explorers has not completely passed us by.'
