Ruth Kirk (au). Snow has had an astonishing influence on the shape of the land & human history. In this delightful book, award-winning author Ruth Kirk writes perceptively of how animals & people survive in the snow; of glaciers, continental ice sheets, blizzards, & avalanches; & of the awesome hazards of Arctic & Antarctic exploration. She discusses both our battles against snow & our uses of it, showing its importance to agriculture, climate, & the future. Through scientific reports & interviews with experts in various fields -- from Antarctic explorers to atmospheric physicists -- Kirk surveys the scope of snow’s influence. “In a sense, her book is an encyclopedia on the subject.” “There’s a surprise around every page . . . delightful reading.” B&W photos.
