If you are experienced in the polar regions, or at least familiar with these places and appreciate beautiful writing, this book should be in your library. I personally have been lucky enough to have had extensive experience in polar seas, both in the arctic and the antarctic, in powerful government icebreakers and in my own non ice reinforced vessel. While I have always had the comfort of a ship to return to after a day's work (marine research) on the ice, I have experience with severe ice conditions; I can find no fault with Albanov's descriptions of the various ice formations, rapidly changing ice dynamics and the climate conditions. It is rare to find a man who can accept this kind of daunting responsibility, perform with character and integrity despite the odds (both with members of his party and the conditions) being so stacked against him. This book is recommended without reservation. Russell Nilson
