Abstract:

Annotation

"Gretel Ehrlich is a woman who loves extremes-extreme weather, extreme cold-is exhilarated by the challenges they present, and is keenly alive to sensation and impression at every turn. In The Future of Ice, she travels to extreme points (from Tierra del Fuego to the top of the world) in her quest to understand the complex, primal nature of cold; the forces that are destroying the season of winter; and why the chaotic rhythms of weather are becoming even more disruptive. Ehrlich describes how, over the course of a year, she and her cold-loving canine companion experienced firsthand the myriad expressions of cold-wind, water, snow, and ice. She gives us marvelous histories of these elements, of ocean currents and weather cycles. She delves into the ways in which these anarchic forces of cold continually awaken and arouse our attention, uncovering and clarifying-as only she can-a quintessential connection between humans and their physical world. An unexpected and beguiling book."
