About the Author

Bjorn Vassnes grew up in the Norwegian Arctic, one of the coldestplaces on earth. He is one of Norway's leading science journalists, has won national and international writing prizes including the Fritt Ord Honorary Award and the Golden Pen. He has a science column in one of Norway's top daily newspapers and has written several popular books and produced television programs with scientific and environmental themes.


"Blending anthropology and history with science, Vassnes offers an alarming but illuminating narrative." -Publishers Weekly "This well researched book not only takes the reader to and through the cryosphere, it also clearly and understandably shows how cold has being a catalyst for the evolution of life on Earth, demonstrating that we and many other species are indeed 'Children of the Ice.'" -Robert William Sandford, United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment & Health and author of Vanishing Glaciers: The Snows of Yesteryear and the Future Climate of the Mountain West.
