Published in 1998. I really enjoyed hearing about someone that I didn't know was my hero. I have always wondered how someone got the snowflakes photographed before they melted. Snowflake Bentley is the guy. His love for snow and nature led him to a life of discovery in his photographs but also with the aid of a microscope hooked up to a camera, something very rare in his day! I loved how they told the actual story side by side with the story. Surprisingly, I thought they harmonized nicely.
