Exploring the Outer Boundaries

"That said, some people are happy to live vicariously, especially in high latitudes, and Into the Light is written so compellingly and with such intimacy that the reader is brought aboard Driver as a sixth crewmemeber. From this privileged position (we don't have to clean up when Teiga gets seasick, for instance), we experience everything with the Martins: their trepidation heading north from Bermuda, their building confidence after wintering in iceland and Norway, and their heady euphoria as they creep toward the penultimate goal; 80 degrees north. But more than just adventure on a grand scale, which it undoubtedly is, Into the Light is testament to the power of a family that believes in itself."
