A formidable voice calling for the preservation of the Arctic and the Earth, Will Steger is best known for his legendary polar explorations. He has traveled tens of thousands of miles by kayak and dogsled for over 50 years, leading teams on some of the most significant polar expeditions in history, including the first confirmed unsupported journey to the North Pole and the longest unsupported dogsled expedition. Will Steger has joined the likes of Amelia Earhart and Jacques Costeau in earning the National Geographic John Oliver La Gorce Medal.

In The Steger Homestead Kitchen: Simple Recipes for an Abundant Life, Will collaborates with his niece Rita Mae Steger, chef at the Steger Wilderness Center, and accomplished food journalist and cookbook author Beth Dooley, in a personal and heartfelt collection of family recipes and stories. Interwoven with dozens of mouth-watering recipes—for simple, hearty meals shared around home chefs’ own homestead tables—are Steger’s exhilarating stories of epic adventures exploring the Earth’s most remote regions.
