Cold Comfort: My Love Affair with the Arcticby Graham W. Rowley
Documenting an era of arctic exploration that is fast passing from living memory, Cold Comfort is a captivating account of a young archaeologist's experiences and perceptions of a completely alien, yet fascinating, environment and culture.
"Rowley conveys an indefatigable sense of adventure and shares his excitement in the details of day-to-day life while travelling among the Inuit. His book is an engaging and informative piece of contemporary Arctic literature, worthy of standing among the best writings of his predecessors." John Moss, author of Enduring Dreams: An Exploration of Arctic Landscape.
