THE CAPTAIN OF THE POLE-STAR

by | Read by Chandler Craig

Classics • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1890

Narrator Chandler Craig impeccably delivers this thrilling tale, which is based on the real-life story of the whaling ship MARY CELESTE as it sailed in Arctic waters. He deftly depicts the increasing madness of Captain Nicholas Craigie and the calming voice of the ship's doctor, John M'Alister Ray. Narrator Craig enlivens Doyle's vivid descriptions of the haunted ship and its icy surroundings. Listeners will be chilled by the crew's growing terror as food runs low, and the Captain steadfastly refuses to turn south. Most compelling is learning the tragedy behind the captain's behavior and hearing Dr. Ray's changing tone as he realizes the fate of the ship. End notes by Dr. Ray's father add authenticity and poignancy to this astonishing story. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
