About this book

Readable account of both the ice age phenomenon (including new material on how the last one could have affected human evolution) and the advances in our understanding since Louis Agassiz surprised a sceptical Swiss Society of Natural Sciences in 1837 with his novel theory, dragging them up the mountains to see the scars left by glaciation on hard rocks.
