Not detailed enough,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Frozen Water Trade (Paperback)
This is a very good and interesting book that describes a relatively unknown area of American economy in the 19th century. On the whole, I believe it's worth reading even just for fun and the pleasure of discovering facts that one has not been aware of (as it's very well written). I just wish it contained more details about the trade itself. On the other hand, maybe no more were available. The book also lacks a bibliography, which is a serious drawback, if one wants to do some follow-up research on their own.
