Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than seventy years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close—and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law. And now, as scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives, and unsuspecting civilians are drawn into Grendel's lethal vortex, the most extreme measures possible will be undertaken to protect its dark mysteries—because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could end human life on Earth.

“Intriguing [and] enjoyable.”—Ian McGuire, New York Times Book Review Ice Ghosts weaves together the epic story of the lost Franklin Expedition of 1845—whose two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, and their crew of 129 were lost to the Arctic ice—with the modern tale of the scientists, divers, and local Inuit behind the recent incredible discoveries of the wrecks. Paul Watson, a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist who was on the icebreaker that led one of the discovery expeditions, tells a fast-paced historical adventure story and reveals how a combination of faith in Inuit knowledge and the latest science yielded a discovery for the ages.

The scorched earth policy—an attempt to obliterate anything which might be useful to one's enemies—used in Norway by Hitler led to ruined cities, forced evacuations, and destroyed livesThe German occupation of Norway began on on April 9, 1940, and ended on May 8, 1945, after the capitulation of German forces in Europe. Hitler's scorched earth policy in northern Norway in 1944 flattened every building and forced 50,000 people from their homes in an Arctic winter. Some Norwegians escaped the evacuation, with whole communities sheltering in caves in sometimes desperate conditions. This book presents stories never before told in English using new interviews from families caught in the scorched earth policy. Contributors include Soroya Island refugees rescued from starvation by the Royal Navy and the sons of six fishermen murdered by Nazi commandos hours before the war ended. After the war, many returned to rebuild their obliterated communities. Their stories sit alongside the testimony at Nuremberg of the generals who devastated their land, plus long-forgotten evidence of unspeakable Nazi cruelty towards Russian POWs in Norway.

The amazing true life story of Chuck Fipke, the mining exploration geologist responsible for discovering the vast new diamond fields in Canada's North, reads like spell-binding adventure fiction. Following Fipke in his travels, we experience the fast-paced, cutthroat world of mineral exploration in exotic locales around the world, from the jungles of New Guinea to the savannahs of South Africa to the rainforests of the Amazon to the Arctic tundra. Fipke is a modern-day adventurer, an Indiana Jones of mining exploration, obsessed with the quest for minerals. His is a complex personality combining a virtuoso understanding of the science behind mineral exploration with a compulsive drive for adventure. The story culminates in Fipke's staking of the potentially multi-billion-dollar Ekati diamond claim in Canada's Northwest Territories, now being developed into one of the largest diamond mines outside South Africa.

1913. Dinners, Millet-Bass, and Napps-three explorers bound not by friendship, but by a dependence founded on survival-volunteer to leave their ship, the Kismet, and scout an uncharted and unknown island in the Antarctic, which Napps names "Everland." While all three are enticed by the promise of adventure and reward, they are immortalized by the disastrous outcome of the expedition, their stories preserved for posterity. 2012. Brix, Jess, and Decker-three researchers with their own reasons for being so far from home-set out on a centenary field trip to survey the same island. Their equipment is more advanced than the previous group's, and their purpose more scientific, but the harsh weather of Everland remains an unpredictable and deadly force: the adventure and the danger are inescapable. Under the harsh ultraviolet light of a sun which doesn't set, and isolated from the world, they begin to echo the expedition of a hundred years ago. History, it seems, has a way of repeating itself-when theirs is written, what will it say? From the Trade Paperback edition.
