Hiking across the Alpine Similaun Glacier between Austria and Italy during 1991, two tourists discovered a frozen body. This hiking victim carried a tool from the Stone Age. The probable identity of the well-preserved corpse was unraveled through the combined efforts of scientists and others with academic knowledge of life more than 5,000 years ago in that region. As riveting as a modern thriller, the high interest, easy-to-read text is interspersed with color photos, black-and-white sketches and maps. (Ages 8-16)
