Think of a world without cold drinks, ice cream, and frozen foods. Believe it or not, such a world did exist. Luckily, in the early 1800s, people developed a way to preserve food and store it year-round -- and the amazing ice business was born. This was big business. Workers had to cut large blocks of ice from ponds, lakes, and rivers; store them in gigantic icehouses; and transport them to cities, where icemen and their wagons delivered the ice to homes.
Calkins Creek, 2012. Hardcover, 74 pp.
