Kurlansky, Mark, Frozen in Time. Pgs. 165. Random House, 2014. $15.99. INFORMATION.
Ever wondered how the frozen food in your freezer came to being? When one opens the freezer, they might not think about how someone had to invent that technology, but the invention of it is almost a miracle in itself. From his observations of how Native American tribes preserved food to the development and selling of the technology shortly before the Stock Market Crash of 1929 all came together with impeccable timing. This book is the story of this instrumental frontier technology and how it forever changed the world. A fascinating, engaging book with great use of facts, primary sources, and knowledge of history. Readers who are interested in the food process or who need to read a non-fiction book will enjoy reading this book. Included are a bibliography and index for further investigation. MS, HS. OPTIONAL.
