Given the  temperatures in much of the country lately, I thought I'd mention this book again.  Cold: Adventures in the World's Frozen Places by Bill Streever is a great read about how cultures, people and animals deal with extremely cold temperatures.  It makes for fascinating reading for those who are interested in that sort of thing.  Curl up in front of the fire while you read it.

Wish-listed. Apparently he has a new one called "Hot".
