Summary Twelve-year-old, Hameister had a dream: to complete the Polar Hat Trick: expeditions to the North Pole, across the Greenland ice sheet, and to the North Pole. At sixteen she became the youngest person in history to complete it. She endured extremes of cold and blizzards; treacherous terrain where one wrong step could be fatal; struggled through sastrugi, ice rubble and emotional lows to achieve an extraordinary goal. And along the way, she made a sandwich for online trolls, inspired young people, and made international headlines. Here she details her quest-- and charts a path for anyone who wants to make the impossible possible. -- adapted from dust flap
