THE ICE AT THE END OF THE WORLD An Epic Journey into Greenland's Buried Past and Our Perilous Future

by | Read by Fred Sanders, Jon Gertner [Intro. & Epilogue]

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Fred Sanders's narration enlivens an adventure-filled tale of early Arctic exploration that is more creative nonfiction than climate-change tome. Listeners set sail with the first Europeans to explore the planet's largest island--Greenland. Author Jon Gertner, who narrates the introduction and epilogue, is as fascinated with the remote expansiveness of the Greenland ice sheet as the handful of men who persevered through starvation and ice to traverse it. The adventure seamlessly flows from daring Shackleton-like expeditions to the modern science of reconstructing ancient climates using the information found in Greenland's ancient ice cores. With stark seriousness, Sanders delivers the audiobook's grim news--the Greenland ice sheet is disappearing, and something globally catastrophic may already have been set in motion.
