Next comes ice like panes of glass.  And eventually, skating ice!  Take a literary skate over field ice and streams, through sleeping orchards and beyond.  The first ice, the second ice, the third ice . . . perfect ice . . . the last ice . . . Twelve kinds of ice are carved into twenty nostalgic vignettes, illustrated in elegantly scratched detail by the award-winning Barbara McClintock.

With the first ice-a skim on a sheep pail so thin, it breaks when touched-one family's winter begins in earnest.
