From the Back Cover:

"This carefully documented scientific account reads like a mystery, is just as hard to put down....Spindler's knowledgeable and fascinating speculations about where the Iceman came from, what he was doing there, and how he died offer remarkable insights into the lives of the people who lived near the end of the Stone Age -- and about ourselves. This is a must read!"

-- Jean Auel, author of the Earth's Children "TM" Series

"A fascinating glimpse into the very distant past."

-- USA Today

"[The Man in the Ice] will remain the book to read about the Stone Age equivalent of King Tut....A fascinating book."

-- Baltimore Evening Sun

"Astonishing....Reads like a forensic mystery."

-- Publisher's Weekly
