Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967702119, Paperback)Poetry. History. Travel. Blending historical, scientific, and literary scholarship with an impressive range of poetic forms, Seattle poet Melinda Mueller re-creates one of the most astounding survival stories. WHAT THE ICE GETS is an adventure story, a requiem, and a love poem written to twenty-eight heroes and the mythic landscape they set out to explore but that instead explored them. Both passionate and precise, this is a moving and powerful telling of one of the last century's greatest voyages. The ice has found a worthy poet -- Andrea Barrett. The whole poem is gripping to the end -- Booklist (starred review).
