Product Details


“Utterly fascinating…Wheeler has given us an important new understanding of the most notorious calamity in the annals of twentieth-century exploration. Cherry is a wonderful book.” —Jon Krakauer, author of Into Thin Air

“Beautifully written…Wheeler’s vocabulary to evoke this luminous and cruel continent…appears limitless.” —Caroline Alexander, The New York Times Book Review

“Spellbinding…Cherry is an exquisite work.” —The Washington Post

“Accomplishes what only the best biographies can….She is able to satisfy the reader’s curiosity of how it must have felt to be on that doomed expedition.” —The Times (London)

“With this wonderful biography Sara Wheeler has now vaulted into the front rank of modern British writers….Cherry is so much more than a story of one remarkable man. It is, among other things, an exploration of the mind, a tour through the notions of national identity and pride, and a celebration of the tensile strength of the human spirit.” —Simon Winchester
