Eckstein sheds light on the snowman's enigmatic past: from the present day to the Dark Ages, with the creation of the very first snowman. Eckstein interest has snowballed into a (mostly) earnest quest of chasing Frosty around the world, into museums and libraries, and seeking out a riveting history as an integral part of our world culture, appearing in rare prints, paintings, early movies, and advertising. -- adapted from Amazon.com
