Benedict's journey of 1000 miles with ten resilient and strong-willed Chukotka dogs through Siberia in the worst winter in living memory.
Assisted by two superb Chukchis, or "reindeer herders" Benedict made his way to the Bering Strait, and then set out alone with his dogs in an attempt to cross it. But it wasn't that easy! Benedict had been suffering from frostbite from the first day of the trip; and now would be alone with Polar bears, wolves, and his dogs. Would his lead dog, "Top Dog," trust him enough, once they were alone together, and exposed to dangers of the Arctic?
