SKIING INTO THE BRIGHT OPEN My Solo Journey to the South Pole

by | Read by Ann Richardson

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Norwegian explorer Liv Arnesen's fascinating account of her solo ski trek to the South Pole tells the story of a woman who battles, and conquers, nature. The story also weaves historical facts into the first-person perspective. Ann Richardson narrates the translated work in a gentle manner. You might not feel the winds whipping around Arnesen, but you get a genuine sense of her motivation as she crosses hundreds of miles. Richardson doesn't imitate anyone; rather, she helps the listener understand Arnesen, who embraces solo outdoor adventures. The quiet, simple narration conveys what drives Arnesen--across the snow and in other areas of her life. M.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
