"This award-winning author continues to chronicle our wonder of the world. She did it in Ship Fever (winner of the 1996 National Book Award) and The Voyage of the Narwhal, and does it again in this collection of powerful, sometimes gut-wrenching stories. And while science history ? discovery and endeavor ? is at the heart of her work, Andrea Barrett's work is clearly the history of the heart. Utterly fascinating."
