Summary

Summary

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 doll's head. But it wasn't. 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!
