by Elizabeth Bradfield
Using lyric writing and evocative photographs, Toward Antarctica documents and explores poet-naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield's time working as a guide on ecotour boats traveling to Antarctica. Writes Paisley Rekdal, "Toward Antarctica is a travelogue, a meditation, a photo-essay, a documentary poem, an ode and an elegy. It is a work of eco- and cultural criticism, personal essay, history, and photojournalism." Sara Wheeler, author of Terra Incognita, writes, "I wholeheartedly recommend this special book." Bradfield's insider's view of the travel industry is both a love letter and a fearful query. By overlapping her own experiences with stories of explorers, facts about animals and ecology, insight into the dynamics "below decks," and more, Bradfield provides a unique perspective on travel to the world's "last wild place.
