A grandmother of two, 60-year-old Burrows came to climbing and polar travel late in life. She has been on expeditions to Chimborazo, Kilimanjaro, and the North and South Pole. Here, she recounts her race 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, were one of six teams to compete in the historic 2009 Amundsen Omega 3 South Pole Race. 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.
