WOMAN, CAPTAIN, REBEL The Extraordinary True Story of a Daring Icelandic Sea Captain

by | Read by Ann Richardson

Biography & Memoir • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Ann Richardson brings a calm and pleasant feminine voice to the legendary life of Thurídur Einarsdóttir. Captain Thurídur's life from the late 1700s and early 1800s was difficult because of weather, terrain, and social customs, but it didn't stop her from being the strong and independent purposeful woman she was. The challenges of life in a rural, rugged, and risky Iceland, complicated by limited rights of land ownership, inheritance, and civic engagement because of her gender, did not stand in the way of her adventures. Thurídur lived an honorable life on her own terms as a fishing captain, farmer, mother, shop clerk, guide, and community member. With her Scandinavian heritage, Ann Richardson does an especially fine job with the pronunciation of Icelandic names and places. L.J.C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
