The Arctic: An Anthology Reviews

* 'The terrible beauty of the polar regions has posed a challenge to those who have seen it, causing them to strive grimly to find new ways to describe it... there is some superb nature writing in these collections... [they] display the beauty and vulnerability of these regions, and in doing so explain just what we stand to lose, and how close we are to losing it' Guardian * 'Some real talent - writers who not only know their subject, but who can also discuss it with colour and elegance' Good Book Guide
