(Amy Gulick, photographer and author of Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska’s Tongass Rain Forest)
"What is science? Chris Linder and his journalist friends answer that question with exquisite photography and sensitive, informed writing as they journey with scientists to the polar regions. Through Science on Ice, the reader participates in expeditions and becomes aware of the method of inquiry, known as Science, by which, with relevant foreknowledge, questions are asked such that with a bit of creativity (but sometimes under daunting conditions) answers result. Those answers bring new inquiry. . . . It's like a drug."
(David Ainley, Penguin Science and The Last Ocean)
