Reading paragraphs

In 1991, two tourists hiking in the Alps saw something very odd sticking out of the snow. At first it looked like a dolls head. But it wasnt. It was a man, frozen in the ice for 5,000 years. Ice Mummy—first published by Random House in 1998—tells the story of this amazing discovery, from the struggle to remove the mummy from his icy grave to the creation of his final resting place: a specially designed refrigeration chamber in his own museum in Bolzano, Italy.

Now updated to include shocking new evidence that the Iceman was murdered—shot with an arrow after hand-to-hand combat with an assailant—Ice Mummy will provide young readers with more chills than ever!

Synopsis:

Mistaken as a doll's head in 1991, the Ice Mummy has been frozen for 5,000 years. Written for the first time in an easy-to-read format, this is his story. Color photos.

This is the story of the Ice Mummy, written for the first time in an easy-to-read format. It's also the only book to include information about the Mummy's latest incarnation--as a museum exhibit in Bolzano, Italy. On public view for the first time ever, he now enjoys a few twentieth century comforts, including a specially designed refrigeration chamber that re-creates the icy conditions of the glacier where he was found!
