One Day the Ice Will Reveal All Its Dead
In this unforgettable debut novel Clare Dudman has imaginatively re-created the life of the German scientist Alfred Wegener, whose theory of continental driftÂderided by his contemporariesÂwould eventually revolutionize our perception of the world. WegenerÂ's irresistible urge to discover the unknown takes him from the horrors of World War IÂ's trenches to several lengthy expeditions across the unexplored ice of Greenland, an extraordinary quest thatÂwith the support of a remarkable womanÂgives birth to a powerful idea worth fighting for. Distinguished by its evocation of the unforgiving beauty of the Arctic, this stunningly written tale of obsession and courage will thrill readers of scientific history and the best adventure writing.
