4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 31, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is the best book on the history of climate, and is full of stories from the last 2000 years, as well as tree-ring data and much more.
You need to be very into the subject, however, as it is a thick book.
The material from the pre-historic period is weak (of course), and the discussion of future climate trends has been overtaken by recent events (the Greenhouse Effect).
Still, if you are seriously interested in the subject of long-term climate, this is THE book.
