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!
