I loved Ralph Plaisted like my own dad. But even if you didn’t know Ralph and his team, you will love this book. Ralph taught me the true spirit of adventure by living it. Who else could sit over a glass of scotch in Duluth looking out over Lake Superior’s stark winter ice cap and dream of conquering the North Pole by snowmobile? Who else could realize that dream of having a United State Air Force plane radio to him at the Pole proclaiming ‘Plaisted, every direction from where you fellas are is south!’ That could—only—be Ralph. First to the Pole engages the reader on every twist and turn of this amazing journey. A journey that not only captures the North Pole, but the true spirit of adventure which was the fabric of my dear friend and wilderness mentor, Ralph Plaisted. Eric Gislason, Longtime KSTP-TV Sports Reporter/Outdoor TV Show Host/Storyteller
