Scéal cumhachtach Matthew Henson. Agus é óg, theith sé ón mbaile agus ón leasmháthair a chaith go dona leis. Níor chuimhnigh sé riamh go mbeadh sé ar dhuine de na chéad daoine riamh a sheas ag an Mol Thuaidh. Ach nuair a fhill sé ar Mheiriceá, tugadh neamhaird ar a chuid gaiscí de bharr dath a chraicinn. Scéal eachtrúil a thaitneoidh go mór le léitheoirí óga.
“Tá sé bainte amach againn!” a bhéic mé. “Tá muid ann! An Mol Thuaidh! Tá muid ar bharr an domhain! Is muidne na chéad daoine a leag cos anseo ó thús an tsaoil.”
When orphan Matthew Henson ran away from his violent stepmother to find a new life in the big city, no one could have predicted that he would become the first man to reach the North Pole.
A little luck and a lot of hard work led to a life of adventure on the high seas and in the Arctic, but back home in America his achievements were ignored due to the colour of his skin. ‘Race to the Frozen North’, now translated into Irish, tells his remarkable true story.
