We are experiencing great interest for Bjørn Vassnes book Kingdom of Frost. It was pre-empted for the German market by DTV at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
The Cryosphere is the name of those parts of the earth that contain frozen water; like snow, ice, permafrost, glaciers - and something that very few has heard of: invisible glaciers. This is a part of the world that most of us only know from afar - with the exception of Norwegians and other Northerners. But we see less and less of it, as the area is shrinking.
In this book, Bjørn Vassnes, Norway´s leading science journalist and native to the arctic plateau of Finnmarksvidda, take us on a fascinating journey through climate research, biology, cultural history and archaeology. Weather you live in it or not, The Kingdom of Frost effects all life on earth.
