    Hampton SidesPlease join us for a stimulating discussion of our April book selection and bring your suggestions for future readings. All PJTC members are most welcome! We will be reading In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette by Hampton Sides. This New York Times bestselling author has written 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, although theories abounded. 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. Books are available at Vroman's at a 20% discount. We are listed as PJTC Book Club.
