A Remembrance of William E. Glassley

We at Bellevue Literary Press are saddened by the news of Bill Glassley’s death while traveling to his beloved Greenland to continue his research there. A geologist whose commitment to wilderness preservation informed his lyrical writing and profound humanism, he was always thoughtful, cheerful, and considerate of all of us who worked with him on his prizewinning book, A Wilder Time: Notes from a Geologist at the Edge of the Greenland Ice. We feel honored to have known him and will miss him terribly.
