The history of Greenland's ice begins with the explorers who arrived here at the turn of the twentieth century. Their original goal was simple: to conquer Greenland's seemingly infinite interior. Jon Gertner chronicles the unfathomable hardships, amazing discoveries, and scientific achievements of the Arctic's explorers and researchers with a transporting, deeply intelligent style - and a keen sense of what this work means for the rest of us. The melting ice sheet in Greenland is, in a way, an analog for time. It contains the past. It reflects the present. It can also tell us how much time we might have left.
