Falling for Snow: A Naturalists Journey into the World of Winter by Jamie Bastedo

In this spirited mix of humor, science and adventure, naturalist Jamie Bastedo takes you on an uncommon romp through snow. Share in the quest of early snow scientists to unravel snows many riddles. Meet a madcap balloonist who risked it all to inspect snowstorms five miles up. Join snow ecologists as they gauge the importance of snow in shaping the lives of plants and animals. Pull your hair out with urban leaders, road crews, and train engineers as they do battle with paralyzing piles of snow. Discover the imprint of snow on native languages and some of our best art and literature. Explore the outer limits of snow-based recreation. And follow in Bastedos foot, ski and snowshoe tracks as he guides you across creaking glaciers, through hushed evergreen forests and over frozen arctic seas in a playful exploration of the many facets and meanings of snow. As inspirational as it is informative, this light-hearted book will appeal to anyone with even the slightest curiosity about that white stuff you will never again call plain old snow.|Pull your hair out with urban leaders and road crew as they do battle with paralyzing piles of snow.
