In the kingdom of ice : the grand and terrible polar voyage of the U.S.S. Jeannette by Hampton Sides( Recording )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late nineteenth century, people were obsessed by one of the last unmapped areas of the globe: the North Pole. James Gordon Bennett, Jr., the stupendously wealthy owner of The New York Herald, funded an official U.S. naval expedition to reach the Pole, choosing as its leader a young officer named George Washington De Mong. On July 8, 1879, the USS Jeannette set sail with De Long leading a team of thirty-two men deep into uncharted waters. After journeying north of the Bering Strait, they found themselves trapped in pack ice. Two years into the harrowing voyage, the hull was fatally breached, and the Jeannette sank to the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, marooning the men on an ice cap. Thus began their long, fateful march across the frozen sea - an ordeal that ranks as one of the greatest struggles for survival in history. Facing everything from snow blindness and frost bite to ferocious storms and bewildering labyrinths of ice, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for the Siberian coast

Dear life by Alice Munro( Recording )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alice Munro's peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but always spacious and timeless stories is once again everywhere apparent in this brilliant new collection. In story after story, she illumines the moment a life is forever altered by a chance encounter or an action not taken, or by a simple twist of fate that turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into a new way of being or thinking. While most of these stories take place in Munro's home territory -- the small Canadian towns around Lake Huron -- the characters sometimes venture to the cities, and the audiobook ends with four pieces set in the area where she grew up, and in the time of her own childhood : stories "autobiographical in feeling, though not, sometimes, entirely so in fact." These tales about departures and beginnings, accidents and dangers, and outgoings and homecomings both imagined and real, paint a radiant, indelible portrait of how strange, perilous, and extraordinary ordinary life can be.--Container
