Stephen Pyne is an associate professor of history at Arizona State University-West. He spent three months in Antarctica as a recipient of the Antarctic Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.Review:
"Stephen Pyne long ago realized that life is but a special case of the more general chemistry of carbon and exygen that are constantly setting earth aflame. The frozen waste of Antarctica is thus a glimpse at the future that awaits us at the end of all time, when life and fire finally cease."―William Cronon
