"A deft naturalist with a keen eye for details of nature, human and nonhuman... Bradfield's poems delight." -- San Francisco Chronicle

This collection portrays the gripping history of polar exploration by channeling its most notable figures -- Symmes, Mawson, Scott, Cherry-Garrard, Byrd, and Shackleton among them. From their perspectives and her own, Elizabeth Bradfield relays the wonders and dangers, physical and mental, encountered while endeavoring to reach the earth's least-hospitable regions.
