What about Børge?

David Grann wrote a tremendous psychological profile of British explorer Henry Worsley for The New Yorker. I mostly loved the story, but I had a quibble with how Grann went along with the (very British) claims to novelty on Worsley’s part—that if he succeeded, he’d be the first to cross Antarctica “solo, unassisted and unsupported.” Turns out I wasn’t the only one giving such claims the side-eye, either. So I endeavored to pay a little credit where it’s due for Outside Online.
