About the scientist before his time that wanted to show that no two snowflakes were alike and that each one is startlingly beautiful . So he did devise a way to photograph snowflakes even though at the time the technology wasn't there like today. Wilson Bentley ,who the story is about , not only had a scientist's vision and perseverance , but a clear passion for the wonders of nature. Recommend this book , you won't be disappointed .
