Cold, by Bill Streever

November 27, 2010

     Best read when you’re all snug and warm, with an afghan or a cat on you legs; this is an absorbing look at the colder parts of our planet. Bill lives in Anchorage, Alaska, with his son and his dog, and spends quite a bit of time outside, whatever the weather. He visits ice caves, arctic tundra, goes cross-country skiing, scuba dives, and much more. You’ll learn about snow, ice, glaciers, blizzards, wildlife, hibernation, outdoor sports and how it really feels to step into the ocean and stand submerged in 35 degree water for several minutes. Streever also discusses the history of thermometers, the search for absolute zero, as well as how a volcano can make the world a colder place.  Read more at his website.
