Icefields by Thomas Wharton.

About Icefields: On a climbing expedition in 1898, Dr. Ned Byrne slipped into a crevasse in the Arcturus Glacier. What he saw while he waited for rescue would haunt him for the next 25 years.

Quiet, understated, well-written, and different. I'm glad I read it. Full review: Icefields by Thomas Wharton.

This book was my pick for Alberta for the Canadian book challenge.

On an unrelated and annoying note: Songs were being scrobbled to my account that I did not listen to. So now I've got a skinhead band in my weekly top artists. :-(
