Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 4,718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of a self-taught scientist who photographed thousands of individual snowflakes in order to study their unique formations. Snow in Vermont is as common as dirt. 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
