From the award-winning author of the Mars Trilogy comes a thrilling new novel....

Now, in his latest novel, he takes us to a harsh, alien landscape covered by a sheet of ice two miles deep. This is no distant planet--it is the last pure wilderness on earth.

The winner of this critical battle will determine the future for this last great wilderness....
