This is an epic tale of a ship in 6/1913, the H.M.C.S. Karluk, that embarked on the most elaborate Arctic expedition in History, with the largest scientific staff ever taken on such a journey. 6 wks. later, the ship was frozen in a massive block of ice and the leader, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, abandoned everyone on board. Drawing on the diaries of the rescued and the perished and even an interview with a living survivor the author recreates with astonishing accuracy and immediacy the ill fated voyage and the desperate attempts to find a way hoome from the icy wastes of the Artic.

Gripping, haunting. The novel is read by the author, Jennifer Niven. Her work is derived from journals and news stories of this true story. Worth a listen.
