Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 4,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of a self-taught scientist who photographed thousands of individual snowflakes in order to study their unique formations. Snow in Vermont is as common as dirt. Why would anyone want to photograph it? From the time he was a small boy, Wilson Bentley thinks of ice crystals as small miracles, and he determines that one day his camera will capture for others their extraordinary beauty. Often misunderstood in his time, he took pictures that even today reveal two important truths about snowflakes: first, that no two are alike, and second, that each one is startlingly beautiful. His story gives children insight into a soul who had not only a scientist's vision and perseverance, but a clear passion for the wonders of nature.--Publisher information
