If you think it’s cold this winter, imagine being trapped from 1914 to 1916 on ice floes in Antarctica with barely enough food and too few tents and sleeping bags. Armstong’s vivid biography of Shackleton and his crew is brought to life by Taylor Mali. Excerpts from diaries and newspaper accounts, which flesh out this incredible adventure of survival in the harshest environment on the planet, are read in distinct accents by Mali. Maps showing the travels of ship and crew on the audiobook cover help illustrate the extent of this trip. Mali’s intense narration drives listeners of all ages to experience the severe weather, lack of food and incredible demands of exploration and survival.
