Why would anyone want ot photograph it? From the time he was a small boy, Wilson Bentley thinks of ice crystals as small miracles, and he determines that one day his camera will capture for others their extraordinary beauty. Often misunderstood in his time, he took pictures that even today reveal two important truths about snowflakes: first, that no two are alike, and second, that each one is startlingly beautiful. HIs story gives children insight into a soul who had not only a scientist's vision and perserverance, but a clear passion for the wonders of nature.--Publisher information."@en ;
