Joanna’s debut novel is a great success. She is passionate
about stories of the great adventurers of Antarctic travel, and
retells the story as if in the team. She retells how hard it was and how
the team struggled but remained a team through perseverance
and courage despite the desperate weather and conditions and the
advancing Norwegian team.
Joanna is a great person, full of enthusiasm and energy. Her
own adventurous spirit and love of working with students is hugely
successful in schools in both the UK and New Zealand.

The first UK tour in October and November 2017 focused on schools which originally supported Scott in 1920, from money for a pony to provisions and supplies.
Schools were delighted to meet with Joanna and bring Scott’s endeavours to the students of 2017, bringing the past back to life.
