Praise for In Antarctica

In Antarctica may not be a book of poetry, but the respect and command of language that makes Ruzesky such a wonderful poet is on display throughout the book...He vividly brings to life the beauty of Antarctica, a place that to the unfamiliar may seem like just a white barren wasteland...Ruzesky is such a fine writer - fact or fiction - that he is worth following to the end of the Earth.
—Colin Holt, Victoria Times-Colonist

In Antarctica is a fascinating and eminently readable memoir...In addition to a lifetime of anticipation, Ruzesky brings along his poet’s palette as he discovers what it’s really like to set foot on the last truly wild place on Earth. In Antarctica is a finely crafted piece of creative non-fiction, well suited for either the veteran or armchair traveler. Since few of us will ever reach Antarctica ourselves, it’s a treat to have an author as accomplished as Ruzesky capture the experience for us.
—John Threlfall, CVV Magazine
