A. Michael Bronston
The stories told by A. Michael Bronston are of the people he has known, and of the places he has lived and worked. The Antarctic, Greenland, the Rocky Mountains, and the Alps are a few of the place he has written about. Working as chef, a backcountry mountain guide, a ski instructor and coach are some of the occupations that have allowed him to come to be a part of the life of which he has written.
The Pole of Inaccessibility
It’s 1979, and geologist Susan Engen has finally received her grant from the National Science Foundation to explore the Beardmore Glacier region of the Transantarctic Mountains for the super-concentrations of fossil fuels she is certain are there. While her work seems innocuous enough to the NSF, it is her intention to use her discovery to stop the inevitable exploitation to come.
A Quiet and Peaceful Place
Through the course of a day Freddie Jacobson relives a number of scenes from his life. Alone with his dog in the mountain cabin where he spent the now departing winter and where he embraces the rapidly unfolding spring, he finds himself shifting between his place in the present and the worlds of remembrance.
