Frozen In Time | By Mitchell Zuckoff

We love a good adventure book about some forgotten piece of history. Frozen in Time is a dramatic true tale of survival, bravery, and honor in the vast Arctic wilderness during World War II. The gripping account is told by award-winning writer Mitchell Zuckoff(who also wrote 2011s bestseller Lost in Shangri-La), he takes readers on a trip they will not soon forget. The thrilling adventure tells the story of a US cargo plane that crashed into the Greenland Ice Cap and the crash of the search-and-rescue mission plane. These crashes and the fate of the survivors, are brought vividly to life, their battle to endure 148 days of the brutal Arctic winter, until an expedition headed by famed Arctic explorer Bernt Balchen brought them to safety.
