Ice: the nature, the history, and the uses of an astonishing substance / Mariana Gosnell.

Title: Ice: the nature, the history, and the uses of an astonishing substance / Mariana Gosnell.
Author(s): Gosnell, Mariana.
Date: 2006 c. 2005.
Publisher: New York: Alfred A. Knopf
Abstract: Non-technical but wide-ranging, informative and accessible account of ice.
