  • "Antarctica could hope for no better chronicler: spirited, humorous and highly intelligent, she is also a writer of rare talent"

    Observer
  • "Penetrating, vivacious and often amusing, Wheeler's record has a sharp authenticity"

    The Times
  • "She writes with a consistent wry wit... she never lacks empathy, compassion or generosity for people whose values, background and gender were the polar opposite of hers...What she has done could not be done better"

    Independent
  • "Her book is an impressive achievement, one genuinely brushed by the ghosts of the past"

    Beryl Bainbridge, Literary Review
  • "Terra Incognita deserves to be a bestseller...a wonderful book and terrific corrective to the polar bulldust periodically emitted by Sir Ralph Wotsisname and others of his ilk"
