Rehearsal for Mars Colony: "An Empire of Ice: 2 of 2: Scott, Shackleton, and the Heroic Age of Antarctic Science" by Edward J. Larson and John Allen Nelson.

“An Empire of Ice reflects exhaustive digging and reaches well beyond the standard source materials. . . . Larson provides enough fresh perspective that even devotees of polar literature will learn things.”—Jennifer Kingson, New York Times Book Review

“A far more interesting and richer account than we have had thus far. . . . Larson has written a fascinating book, one sure to force a rethinking of the Scott-Amundsen race as well as reconsiderations that will include science as a driving force in Antarctic and indeed polar exploration.” —Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis, Science Magazine

(Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis Science Magazine)

"The author provides an undeniably exciting account without overpowering the reader with too much detail. Fans of these explorers, science heads, and armchair travelers will find this a worthwhile and thrilling read."—Mike Rogers, Library Journal
