EMPERORS OF THE ICE A True Story of Disaster and Survival in the Antarctic, 1910-13

by | Read by Michael Page

Young Adult Young Adult • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

With "the historian's benefit of hindsight and the novelist's benefit of insight," Richard Farr uses Apsley Cherry-Garrard's own words to tell a story of courage, and sacrifice, perseverance, and madness. Twenty-three-year-old Cherry-Garrard was thrilled to win a spot on Captain Robert F. Scott's 1910 scientific expedition to Antarctica, the last uncharted corner of the world. Michael Page, the voice of Cherry-Garrard, has listeners breathlessly experiencing every hardship, act of bravery, and bone-chilling arctic blast of the disastrous three-year adventure. Farr's reading of the preface and afterword sets the story in the context of the great races to the Poles of the early twentieth century. Aimed at young adult listeners, this will also appeal to adventure-loving adults. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
