This review is by Dick Carter
Even Mountains Vanish. Searching for Solace in an Age of Extinction. SueEllen Campbell. University of Utah Press. 2003
The author doesn't ask the obvious question of how does an animal survives in the months-long abrasive cold-darkness of an arctic winter, but what goes on in its daily life as it settles into that dark winter. It is wonderful book, a deep and personal reflection to be read by poet and scientist.
