More About This Title Cold Hands, Warm Heart
A 60-year old woman’s incredible attempt to race to the South Pole, carrying a call for compassion A grandmother of two, Tess Burrows came to climbing late in life when she found her true calling in campaigning for the Tibetan cause. Here, she races to the South Pole to promote world peace. She not only learns to push the limits of the human body, but also to push out the reaches of the human spirit. She and her partner, Pete, join the historic South Pole race to compete with Olympic champion James Cracknell and Ben Fogle. To complete this mission they have to battle severe medical problems, lack of money, hardship, and deprivation. For Tess it is more than combating cold hands with a warm heart, it is also a journey to push past the influences of the human mind.
Tess Burrows is the author of Cry From the Highest Mountain. A peace activist, she set up the charity Climb for Tibet to raise money for schooling in Tibet.
"The astonishing courage and humour of Tess Burrows makes this terrifying journey a joy to follow." Joanna Lumley, actor and activist
