This review is from: Winter: Five Windows on the Season (Hardcover)
This writer puts his own inventive slant on the subject of the season of winter; I think it is his own personal insight into the subject,and chiefly with reference to conditions found in Canadian winters. I found the chapter on polar exploration the most readable and the account of Montreal's underground city interesting but I think the everyday reader may need to re-read some of the more esoteric chapters in order to avoid thinking that the writer gives an exaggerated account of the influence of the phenomenon of winter-time on the world and our lives.
