Survive: Stories Of Castaways And Cannibals

Overview

The stories in "Survive" are full of suffering: From the savagery of the Donner Party snowbound in the Sierra Nevada mountains during the winter of 1846, to the extreme hunger and brutal cold endured by Ernest Shackleton’s support team in Antarctica in 1915. Such suffering may be hard to listen to, but it engages us, offering glimpses of something essential. When the most basic needs become paramount, some people can achieve a kind of clarity.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Survive and Deep Blue take listeners to the brink of disaster and the far side of civilization to test the mettle and strength of men and women caught in disastrous circumstances. Both audios combine fiction selections with nonfiction accounts. In Survive, the challenge is to survive situations, such as Steven Callahan's "Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea" (one of the more compelling segments) and the struggle of the marooned support members of Ernest Shackleton's aborted polar expedition to battle scurvy and arctic cold to cross 2000 miles to lay supply depots. Other selections include chapters by Patrick O'Brian, Herman Melville, Jack London, and a diary account from Virginia Reed Murphy, a member of the ill-fated Donner Party. Deep Blue similarly presents stories of shipwrecks and survival, with some sunken treasure thrown in for good measure. Excerpts from such well-known works as Treasure Island and Moby-Dick are included, along with selections from Stephen Crane, O'Brian, Farley Mowat, and more. The most powerful selection is from Nathaniel Philbrick's excellent In the Heart of the Sea, the true story that served as the basis for Moby-Dick. Both audiotapes use experienced readers, who provide accents and emotions suited to their selection. The weakest parts in each tape are the fictional works. They stand out as filler rather than strong partners against the words and actions of actual victims. Adventure seekers and fans of the Listen & Live "Adrenaline" series will still likely enjoy these two titles.
