The melting of world glaciers has not only exposed rocky terrain, but long-hidden human bodies, such as the man now known as Ötzi. The book offers insight into a variety of cultures along the Andes, the Alps, and the Himalayas, and includes helpful maps and primary resources. Personal Ways to Help the Environment, Glaciers to Visit, Suggested Websites, Bibliography, Illustration Credits.

Hold on to your stomachs! There are some real graphic photos of some old bodies. The book is set up in chapters that address different locations around the world where previous civilizations have existed. The one I definitely found the most interesting was the chapter about the children of the andes. I have actually been to the museum in Arequipa, Peru where you can see several of the children that scientists have uncovered on the tops of the massive andes mountains. Unfortunately, the translations of explanations in the museum were not fabulous so it was great to get more information about these young people. It is wild to hear about the explorations as well -- the lengths that people put themselves through to further out intake of information. There is also and end section talking about why glaciers are melting and what it means for us, along with notes on how to help the environment. That creates this nice balance of: yes it is fascinating and illuminating to find these bodies and be able to process them but its not actually a very good thing that we are finding them. Also love the "Glaciers to Visit" section... who knows how long they'll be around realistically. While in Peru, I visited a shrinking glacier in a small valley. It was a national park that predicted the glacier would be entirely melted in the next 14 years which would lead to the end of the valley's water source and the area would become a desert. The park claimed it was home to 16 species of plants and animals that existed only within the park and would thus become extinct when the glacier fully melted. Hard to hear things like that. ( )

This book tells about various skeletons and artifacts that have been found as glaciers melt and leave. It tells about scientists who have gone looking for these things, as well as things found by accident. There are great photographs of archeological finds and glaciers and mountains, and drawings of past expeditions. I think students would love the mystery of this book, though some younger children might not like it because of the skeletons and partial remains shown. I would use this book as an introduction to global warming.

This book was so cool. It showed pictures of artifacts, and shared many facts about the melting glaciers, and what we can now find out because of that, even though melting glaciers is not good at all. It was very thought provoking and I would recommend it for grades 5-8 ( )

Bodies from the Ice is a fantastic book for any Geography or World History classroom. The illustrations and photographs draw the reader in to the world described in the text. This book introduces information on Otzi the Iceman and the frozen Inca children in the Andes. Then, one may read about glacial movements or possible ways to preserve history through these icy environments. The organization of chapters creates an easy flow from subject to subject. Meanwhile, the author provides an expansive bibliography and photo credits section.

This book began my collection of James M. Deem's work. ( )
