NONFICTION Book Discussion - Question # 1

The Nonfiction benchmark title is In the Kingdom of Ice: the Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette by Hampton Sides, "a white-knuckle tale of polar exploration and survival in the Gilded Age."

Let's start with a bit about the time period ...

  • How did news reporting in the 1800's differ from the the way the news is reported today?  If a newspaper were written in such a manner today, do you think people would subscribe to such a paper?  Explain why or why not?
