What a journey!

I listened to this audiobook and was totally enthralled. The struggle for survival the crew of the USS Jeannette went through was a fight-for-your-life adventure. Lt. George DeLong and his engineer, Melville, were heroic characters that everyone would love. Their expedition to the North Pole was amazing and harrowing. What the crew went through to get to the Siberian Coast was an edge-of-the-seat listening experience.

Don't miss this nonfiction tale of survival, starvation, and the will to live.
