Synopsis

Synopsis

Jane Drake and Ann Love, the acclaimed authors of Cool Woods: A Trip Around the World’s Boreal Forest, explore the fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes dangerous world of snow. They write about snow as a habitat, the significance of snow on the environment, snow’s impact on the people and animals who live in it, and snow stories and lore from around the world.

From the science of snow to the magic of a winter wonderland, this book is a comprehensive must-read. Not only is the information presented with clarity and brisk good humor, but with urgency. As the polar ice cap melts, we are becoming aware of its critical impact on all of the earth’s living creatures.

Illustrated with Mark Thurman’s detailed drawings and magnificent photographs from the authors’ own collections, this is a wintry treat to enjoy all year.
