Lawrence Millman is a contributor for Houghton Mifflin Company titles including: 'The Last Gentleman Adventurer','Last Places'From Library Journal:
Known for his travel writing, Millman chronicles his journey across the breadth of the North Atlantic, following the route of the Vikings. The armchair traveler accompanies Millman on board various ships from Bergen, Norway, via the Shetland Islands, the Faeroes, Iceland, and Greenland, to Labrador and Newfoundland. The author not only describes the beauty of these remote places but relates the history of their land and people, tells tales of the local mythology, and has heartwarming encounters with the native residents. He never fails to point out how environmental and social changes are endangering these far away and forgotten lands. Millman's acerbic wit makes the book extremely entertaining. He imparts his love and respect for the primitive radiance of the landscape and the hardy character of the region's often eccentric residents.
