Ice Mummy--the true-life account of the discovery of a 5,000 year-old mummy in the Italian Alps--has been a consistent back-list seller since it's publication in 1998. But new scientific evidence has made the Mummy's story even more compelling! He didn't freeze to death as was originally thought. He was murdered! So we're revising 14 pages of text and adding two new photos to keep our backlist timely and accurate.
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!
