    ----; 'Absolutely exquisite. This little book is a work of art. It is impossible to imagine the reader who will not love it.' - Horatio Clare, author of The Light in the Dark: A Winter Journal; ----; Snow. Every language has its own words for the feather-like flakes that come from the sky. In Japanese we find Yuki-onna - a 'snow woman' who drifts through the frosted land.

And in Maori we meet Huka-rere - 'one of the children of rain and wind'.; From mountain tops and frozen seas to city parks and desert hills, writer and Arctic traveller Nancy Campbell digs deep into the meanings of fifty words for snow. Under her gaze, each of these linguistic snow crystals offers a whole world of myth and story.; ----; 'Sparkles and dazzles with new meanings and old magic. You'll never see snow in the same way again.' - Matt Gaw, author of Under the Stars: A Journey Into Light
