Winter: Five Windows on the Season
Winter takes us on an intimate tour of the artists, poets, composers, writers, explorers, scientists and thinkers who helped shape a new and modern idea of winter. We learn how literature heralds the arrival of the middle class; how snow science leads to existential questions of God and our place in the world; how the race to the poles marks the human drive to imprint meaning on a blank space.
Offering a kaleidoscopic take on the season, Winter is a homage to an idea of a season and a journey through the modern imagination.

Review: Winter: Five Windows on the SeasonUser Review - Tony - Goodreads
How could I read such a sensitive book? It was a fine read despite his hatred of cars and love of hockey, neither of which I share. An exciting journey through some very interesting insights and viewpoints. Read full review
Review: Winter: Five Windows on the SeasonUser Review - Dylan - Goodreads
Rather beautiful, and composed - elegant and stylish. Winter viewed through different "windows", and the lenses of art, poetry, science and nature. Will make you yearn for the first snowfall of the season, and inspire you to read some wonderful verse. Read full review
