Cold: Adventures in the World's Frozen Places : From avalanches to glaciers and seals to snowflakes, from igloos to icebergs, permafrost to hoarfrost, and from Shackleton's expedition to "The Year Without Summer," Bill Streever unearths the consistent, ongoing influence of cold on our culture and our planet. Evoking history, myth, geography, and ecology, Streever is a wondrous guide. He explores the hibernation habits of animals, describes how refrigeration has evolved, and takes a dip in an Arctic swimming hole. He conjures woolly mammoths out of the peaks of melting glaciers and evokes blizzards so wild that readers may freeze - limb by vicarious limb.
