New York Times bestselling author Hampton Sides returns with a white-knuckle tale of polar exploration and survival in the Gilded Age

In the late nineteenth century, people were obsessed by one of the last unmapped areas of the globe: The North Pole. No one knew what existed beyond the fortress of ice rimming the northern oceans.

James Gordon Bennett, the eccentric and stupendously wealthy owner of The New York Herald, had recently captured the world's attention by dispatching Stanley to Africa to find Dr. Livingstone. Now he was keen to re-create that sensation on an even more epic scale. So he funded an official U.S. naval expedition to reach the Pole, choosing as its captain a young officer named George Washington De Long, who had gained fame for a rescue operation off the coast of Greenland. De Long led a team of 32 men deep into uncharted Arctic waters, carrying the aspirations of a young country burning to become a world power. On July 8, 1879, the USS Jeannette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds in the grip of "Arctic Fever."

The ship sailed into uncharted seas, but soon was trapped in pack ice. Two years into the harrowing voyage, the hull was breached. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew abandoned the ship. Less than an hour later, the Jeannette sank to the bottom, and the men found themselves marooned a thousand miles north of Siberia with only the barest supplies. Thus began their long march across the endless ice - a frozen hell in the most lonesome corner of the world. Facing everything from snow blindness and polar bears to ferocious storms and frosty labyrinths, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for survival.

With twists and turns worthy of a thriller, In the Kingdom of Ice is a spellbinding tale of heroism and determination in the most unforgiving territory on Earth.

纽约时报畅销书作家汉普顿在《镀金时代》中讲述了极地探险和生存的白色故事。

在十九世纪下旬,人们沉迷于一个地球的最后映射的区域:北极点。没有人知道存在超越冰沸腾北部海洋堡垒。

James Gordon Bennett,纽约先驱报的偏心和惊人的富有的老板,最近派遣斯坦利到非洲找Livingstone博士引起了世界的关注。现在他渴望以更宏大的尺度重新创造这种感觉。于是,他资助了一次正式的美国海军考察队,到达南极,选择了一个名叫乔治华盛顿·龙的年轻军官,他在格陵兰岛海岸的一次营救行动中获得了声誉。De Long率领一支由32人组成的队伍深入到未知的北极海域,承载着一个年轻国家燃烧世界强国的愿望。1879年7月8日,美国军舰珍妮特从三藩启航的“北极热握人群欢呼。”

船驶进了未知的海域,但很快被困在浮冰中。在痛苦的航行两年后,船体被破坏了。在急流和破木板的尖叫,船员弃船。不到一个小时后,Jeannette沉到底部,和男人发现自己被困在西伯利亚以北一千英里处只有最基本的用品。于是,他们在无尽的冰面上开始了漫长的行军——在世界上最寂寞的角落里冰封的地狱。面对一切从雪盲和北极熊凶猛的暴风雪和严寒的迷宫,远征作战的疯狂和饥饿,他们拼命争取生存。

波折值得惊悚片,在冰雪的王国是一个引人入胜的故事,英雄主义和测定地球最无情的领土。
