ENDLESS NOVELTIES OF EXTRAORDINARY INTEREST The Voyage of H.M.S. Challenger and the Birth of Modern Oceanography

by | Read by Sean Runnette

History • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook history of the first scientific exploration of the world's oceans in the 1870s will appeal to a general audience as well as those specifically interested in history and oceanography. Sean Runnette is a steady, unobtrusive narrator who fits his voice to the pace and spirit of his narrative and is pleasantly free of accent and affect. It's a voice that wears well when the listener's attention is on fact and detail. The title sounds a bit extravagant, but this is a solidly researched account by an esteemed oceanographer, and "extraordinary" doesn't half describe what this expedition dredges from the ocean floor, or the rich legacy its voyage left for the study of our globe and its oceans.
