THE SHIP BENEATH THE ICE The Discovery of Shackleton's Endurance

by | Read by Charles Armstrong, Mensun Bound [Pref.]

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrating the preface, author/marine archaeologist Mensun Bound sets the tone for the true story of two electrifying and dangerous searches for the ill-fated ENDURANCE, which sank off the coast of Antarctica in November 1915. The suspenseful adventures to find the ship at its last known coordinates are then recounted through Bound's meticulous note-taking and the inviting tones of Charles Armstrong. The first expedition in 2019 ended in bitter disappointment, while new technology aboard the second, post-pandemic, voyage brought success. Filled with scientific and nautical information, as well as snippets of diaries left by Shackleton and members of his crew, Armstrong's brisk, conversational delivery details the events faced by Bound's team and their journeys to the inhospitable icebound Wedell Sea.
