    Travel north—beyond the Arctic Circle—to Barrow, Alaska, and meet the proud Iñupiat people. For thousands of years they have hunted whales on the open sea, but now global climate change threatens their way of life. The whale hunt is about to begin, and you’re invited to come along! Just as soon as the ice covering the ocean cracks apart, the whales will appear. Set out with the Iñupiats in their bearded-sealskin boats to hunt bowhead whales, and witness a tradition that has been followed for three thousand years. So grab some warm clothes and loosen up your throwing arm—the hunt is on! Multiple award-winning author Peter Lourie is acclaimed for his environmental science writing. Here he transports young listeners due north to discover a culture completely different from their own and to show them what climate change means for the Iñupiat and us all.

    In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton and a crew of twenty-seven men sailed from England in an attempt to cross Antarctica from one side to the other. Their ship, Endurance, became icebound and sank, still one hundred miles from land. What follows is one of the most amazing stories of survival ever recorded. Over the next nineteen months, Shackleton led his men through brutal perils of every kind on ice, land, and sea with one goal—that they all survive. Whether it was a treacherous journey over ice, a storm-racked eight-hundred-mile open-boat journey, or a death-defying trek across a mountain range, Shackleton’s mission never wavered: “But if you’re a leader, a fellow that other fellows look to, you’ve got to keep going.” The story is enhanced with diary excerpts, explanations of the terrain, wildlife, and navigation techniques, and the Antarctic weather that so affected the outcome of the fateful voyage. And narrator Taylor Mali’s dynamic performance transports the listener into the heart of this riveting saga.
