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.

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.
