A major publication this year. Geologist, glaciologist, teacher, environmentalist, poet and songwriter Sigurður Þórarinsson (1912 - 1983) was a truly extraordinary man. He laid the foundation for geology and volcanology in Iceland by his tireless work and ambition. His poetry in songs are still alive and kicking today as well. This book is a major achievement by teacher and biologist Sigrún Helgadóttir that meticulously brings together the numerous traits that make the portrait of Sigurður Þórarinsson.
