The diary come book ties in with a recent television show and is a great insight into how this would be explorer tackles the tough life people in these remote places experience.

Alexander gets stuck in and enjoys minus 40°C temperatures, drives along a hair-raising 800 mile road that is a river in the summer and takes a plunge in freezing Arctic waters.

It’s a great read, especially when you have a nice cup of hot chocolate by your side!
