In the bestselling tradition of Hampton Sides’s In the Kingdom of Ice, Icebound, a “gripping adventure tale” (Boston Globe) recounts of Dutch polar explorer William Barents’s three harrowing Arctic expeditions — the last of which in 1596 resulted in a relentlessly challenging year-long fight for survival. In Icebound, Pitzer conducted extensive research learning how to use 400-year-old navigation equipment, setting out on three Arctic expeditions to retrace Barents’s steps, and visiting replicas of Barents’s ship and cabin. Come hear how she masterfully combines a riveting tale of survival with a sweeping history of the great Age of Exploration — a time of hope, adventure, and seemingly unlimited geographic frontiers.
