"["Vanishing Ice"] is a model of its kind as it traces artists' responses to icebound polar and mountain regions over two centuries. A perfect fit for art lovers with an interest in ecological issues." -Michael Upchurch, "The Seattle Times," December 13, 2013
This unusual and involving work is recommended for art, arctic history, and alpine history collections. It is highly recommended for the many readers interested in historic expeditions and/or climate change, who will appreciate the eye-opening dialog between art from many periods.--Shelly Sommer"Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research" (01/01/2015)
