It sounds so unreal you think it must be fiction; but no, it’s true! Greenland, 1942: first a US cargo plane crashes, followed by those of the rescue contingents. Zuckoff’s writing is compelling as he chronicles the events and the expedition 70 years later to find wreckage; you can feel the bitter cold and the roller coaster emotions of those who perished, the survivors, and the current day expedition.
Everyone in my family loved it.
