A book not to miss!

(5 Sterne)

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.

(5 Sterne)

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.
