Pagophile Gift for Holidays
Looking for a last minute gift for that ice-lover (pagophile) on your shopping list? You might check our Mariana Gosnell's "Ice: The Nature, the History, and the Uses of an Astonishing Substance." She covers sea ice, lake ice, river ice, space ice, ice games, frostbite... and, as they say, much, much more. I can't say I've read it (yet) and hope Santa brings me a copy so I can sit around the fire, releasing stored solar energy into the atmosphere, and think cold thoughts.
