I have listened to all the "exploration" type books at Audible. My favorite genre without a doubt. From "The River of Doubt" to "Forever on The Mountain" to "Into Thin Air" to many others, "True North" seems to have similarities to the strengths of all of them.
Unlike the race to the South Pole, however, "True North" has no clear cut winners and losers. No Scott and Amundsen.
Scientific advancement take a back seat to "fame" for the true motivation.
Both explorers, Peary and Cook, are flawed heroes. But that is real life, is it not?. You be the judge!
The intensive research is second to none.
By the way, the author as the narrator may not add to the strength of the presentation.
Otherwise it's a great listen. One of my favorites.

Best Arctic adventure story since Last Place on Earth. It is a shame that Cook's claim has been disputed for over a year.
