About the Book:

What the Ice Gets: Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition, 1914-1916

“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." (Written by Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever and other novels.)
