Reviews
Drawing on rich sources, including diaries, letters, account ledgers, paintings, and religious sermons as well as data gleaned by climate historians and scientists, journalist and translator Blom creates a vivid picture of the European landscape during the Little Ice Age and of social, political, and cultural changes that may have been accelerated by climate change.... An absorbing and revealing portrait of profound natural disaster.
Intriguing.... this wide-ranging and affectionate portrait of 17th-century Europe has a poetic appeal.--Publishers Weekly
An intriguing chronicle.... A well-written, informative, and fresh look at a relevant and instructive climate disruption and will appeal to readers interested in European and environmental history as well as our own climate challenges.--Jennifer Johnson, Booklist
