Nice reading by Laura Victoria of the explorers that dared the frozen tundra to give the world much needed data of the polar regions! 5 stars for the reader Laura has a nice easy to listen to voice and just makes listening to this book a pleasant experience. If you like these type of books on exploring this is a nice easy listen and lots of information on the men that dared the challenge, and some gave their lives, for the betterment of mankind.

A book not to miss!

(5 stars)

This book chilled me to the bone! Intrepid explorers brave the savage cold. This is history everyone should know! And you'll not find a better reader in all of Librivox than Laura Victoria, aka Laura Caldwell. Don't miss any of her narrations.
