About this book

In Winterlust, a farmer painstakingly photographs five thousand snowflakes, each one dramatically different from the next. Indigenous peoples thrive on frozen terrain, where famous explorers perish. Icicles reach deep underwater, then explode. Rooms warmed by crackling fires fill with scents of cinnamon, cloves, and pine. Skis carve into powdery slopes, and iceboats traverse glacial lakes.

This lovingly illustrated meditation on winter entwines the spectacular with the everyday, expertly capturing the essence of a beloved yet dangerous season, which is all the more precious in an era of climate change

Media reviews

"Many people in the modern world do their best to push winter away with their thermostats, shopping malls, and annual escapes to sunnier climes. Brunner masterfully does in words what resilient and adventurous people have done in their lives for centuries; he finds beauty in blizzards and ice and the crystallized enchantment of snow."
– Dan Egan, Pulitzer finalist and author of The Death and Life of the Great Lakes

"A wonderful read and fascinating study of the coldest time of the year – Brunner adds warmth to this subject. I only regret this invaluable book was not available during my own research."
– Bob Eckstein, New York Times-bestselling author of The Illustrated History of the Snowman

"A wonder-filled journey through humanity's multifaceted relationships with this most endangered of seasons. Brunner's explorations reveal how we shape and are shaped by the environments in which we live."
– David George Haskell, Pulitzer finalist and author of The Forest Unseen and The Songs of Trees
