Praise

“One of the Hundred Best Books of Twentieth-Century Exploration”
The Explorer’s Club


“Readers will be amazed and amused by the way the two explorers keep their spirits about them and downplay the terrifying dangers as though it were all in good fun. Fascinating and fun reading.” 
— Booklist


“Mikkelsen is an artisan of cold places, and if his labors are mighty and consuming, they are also of love.” 
Kirkus Reviews
