I can't wait to read The Future of Ice by Gretel Ehrlich. Not long ago, I read This Cold Heaven, her memoir about her travels through Greenland. It's thrilling reading, and perfect if you like to pull winter up around your ears and hunker down into the marrow of it. Barbara Sjoholm's review in The Seattle Times (no, you don't need to sign up to access the article) calls The Future of Ice "a genre-defying mix of travel writing, scientific fact, poetry and outrage." Ehrlich journeys from the South Andes to locations in the Arctic in this year-long personal examination of the impact of global warming on the earth.
