Books on Tyne - Nancy Campbell £3

The Library of Ice, Nancy Campbell

Long captivated by the solid yet impermanent nature of ice, acclaimed poet and writer Nancy Campbell travelled to the world’s northernmost museum, in Upernavik in Greenland, to explore ice in all its facets. From the archives of British libraries to remote Arctic settlements and the curling rinks of Fife, Nancy examines the impact of ice on our lives and its role in preserving our own histories at a time when it is under threat from climate change.

This is a bewitching account of landscape. Nancy is also the author of the poetry collection Disko Bay and the illustrated book How to Say 'I Love You' In Greenlandic.
