    In 1743, a ship carrying 14 Russian sailors was headed for whaling grounds near Norway when a violent storm blew it far off course, where the ship froze into the ice. Some of the sailors remembered that other sailors had erected a hut on a nearby island and spent the winter there. Four sailors volunteered to go ashore to look for the hut in hopes of finding supplies or using it as a refuge should the 14 sailors be forced to spend the winter before the summer thaw could free their ship.

    "Great story!"
    Overall

    This is a fantastic story. In contrast with other reviews, I enjoyed hearing about the authors stuggles to gather the information about what actually happened all those years ago. But at the same time, I can understand how some might find these parts less interesting than the orginal adventure. I just thought it was a nice balance. My only complaint was that there were times some of the background got a bit too detailed. Still a great listen!
