Notes:
An illustrated meditation on the magic of winter and the strange beauty of various responses to it across the planet, such as the farmer who photographs five-thousand snowflakes. Introduction from }Milk!{ author Mark Kurlansky. "Mr. Brunner's winning book is a reassuring, nostalgic reminder that winter is the season of both play and regeneration."-Wall Street Journal In Winterlust, a farmer painstakingly photographs five thousand snowflakes, each one dramatically different from the next. Indigenous peoples thrive on frozen terrain, where famous explorers perish. Icicles reach deep underwater, then explode. Rooms warmed by crackling fires fill with scents of cinnamon, cloves, and pine. Skis carve into powdery slopes, and iceboats traverse glacial lakes.
