INTO THE GREAT EMPTINESS Peril and Survival on the Greenland Ice Cap

by | Read by Julian Elfer

History • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Julian Elfer gives voice to David Roberts in this posthumous publication by the legendary climber and adventure writer, who died in 2021. Roberts's account accompanies Gino Watkins's trek into the interior of Greenland in 1930, when this frozen land was even less well known than the earth's Poles. The remarkable but little-remembered English explorer explored the area with extraordinary leadership and bravery before disappearing on a return trip in 1932. While mainly focusing on Watkins and his team, the audio includes insightful information on Inuit culture as it relates to the expedition. Elfer's confident tone and British accent are appropriate to this story of suffering and stoicism, yet he still allows the author's dry wit to come through.
