About the Author
Elizabeth Bradfield, the author of two previous poetry collections, including Approaching Ice (finalist for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets) is a naturalist who works around the globe. She is also founder and co-editor of Broadsided Press.
In poems both descriptive and intimate, Bradfield (Interpretive Work) examines nearly 200 years of polar exploration, recounting tales of the famous (Shackleton, Peary, Byrd, ) and not so famous (Shirase, Henson, Boyd). She writes with humanity about those who were arguably a bit mad, showing sympathy for the explorers, the creatures they encountered, and the families they left behind. Highly recommended for anyone who reads contemporary poetry. --Karla Huston"
