The prize-winning travel writer and biographer Sara Wheeler talks about her travel from the Antarctic to the Arctic and the experiences she had writing about hope in the Arctic and Antarctic as well as her book O My America: Second Acts in a New World about reinvention in a foreign land.

"You can find hope everywhere if you look for it. The human spirit is still flickering."
