This biography details the life of Wilson Bentley, a self-taught scientist who photographed thousands of individual snowflakes in order to study their unique formations, and he was determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. (McGraw-Hill Treasures, 2009)
