Media reviews

"The photographs are unique, for no-one else has taken so many extensive glacier-survey flights, and very few others possess the feeling for glaciers and alpine terrain expressed in these photographs [...] Glacier Ice is recommended highly for the glaciologist, geologist, mountaineer, or just about anyone fascinated with the beauty of nature."
- American Scientist

"[...] Originally published in 1971, this revised edition [of Glacier Ice] is a truly wonderful book for anyone who has an interest in glaciers [...] The book is really made by over 100 black and white photographs, many near full-page, which are best described as astounding. The text woven between the photographs is well written and informative and covers the fundamentals of glaciers [...] this is a book I will recommend to students of Geography, particularly geomorphology and I would suggest that [...] anybody else who comes into close proximity with glaciers should also take a look. I can guarentee it will be worthwhile."
– Stephen D. Gurney, University of Reading, The Geographical Journal, March 2002
