The ice museum : in search of the lost land of Thule / Joanna Kavenna.
"To the ancients, Thule was a land beyond the edge of the maps, a northerly dreamland. It was a mystery for thousands of years, long thought to be an icy Eden, a place of exquisite beauty and unequaled purity. The lost world of Thule captured the imagination of poets, artists, explorers and, most recently, writer Joanna Kavenna, who set out on a harrowing and exhilarating voyage of discovery. Her journey took her to Shetland, Iceland, Norway, Estonia, Greenland and Savalbard--into the Arctic wilderness, over frozen seas and ice mountains--in search of this most haunting of northern places"--Inside front cover.
