Editorial Reviews


"Kirk gives us a remarkably encompassing picture of snow’s enormous impact on the climate and life of our planet . . . In a sense her book is an encyclopedia on the subject."—Audubon

"There’s a surprise around every page . . . delightful reading."—Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.


"Revisiting Kirk's excellent text takes me out of my cozy hibernation and back into the great wide world— to make snowballs with macaques, to go venturing with the polar explorers, and to gain a better appreciation of how both land and lives have been shaped by the cold white stuff.""—The Olympian

"Ruth Kirk has a rare gift: the ability to crystallize masses of information into clear, sparkling narrative that reflects her own ehthusiasm."—Paul Brooks, author of Speaking for Nature --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I have the earlier edition of this book. It's one of the first comprehensive books about snow. What it is and how it affects life. Even a lot about skiing, and avalanches, and clearing snow from roads, etc. Great to see that it's available again. There's sure a lot more to snow than one would think!
