"Thule was a place beyond the edge of the maps, a mystery for thousands of years. To the Nazis Thule was an icy Eden, birthplace of Nordic "purity." In this exquisitely written narrative, Joanna Kavenna wanders in search of Thule--to Shetland, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Estonia, Greenland, and Svalbard--unearthing the philosophers, poets, and explorers who claimed Thule for themselves, from Richard Francis Burton to Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen." -- back cover.
