The History of the Snowman: From the Ice Age to the Flea Market recounts Bob Eckstein's harrowing quest to solve the enormous mystery surrounding the first snowman. By travelling back in time, this book sheds new light on its enigmatic past - beginning in the present-day, an era in which the snowman reigns as King of Kitsch, and ending in the Dark Ages with the creation of the first snowman. Nothing like this exists to date; it's a Christmas book that's cool and mature, but still appeals to traditionalists.

Review:

"A priceless collection of very important useless information." -- Gary Sohmers, radio host and appraiser on PBS's Antiques Roadshow

"In these Brangelina- and Tomkat-saturated times, it's hard to believe a celebrity on the order of the snowman has gone centuries without a proper biography. Thankfully Bob Eckstein has righted this wrong with his charming and elbow-the-guy-on-the-bus-next-to-you fascinating tale of the world's first true arbiter of cool." -- Brian Farnham, editor-in-chief, Time Out New York

"Fascinating and entertaining. The snowman meant very little to me, but now he's fraught with meaning." -- Len Belzer, host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Comedy Hour

"Thoroughly researched, lavishly illustrated. There's more to the snowman than meets the eye." -- David Smith, New York Public Library
