Praise For Frozen Man

“Getz explains the incredible story of the Iceman clearly and concisely, simply enough for a child to understand but in enough depth to satisfy a curious lay adult.” —Kirkus Reviews

“As smoothly written as Getz's fiction (Thin Air and Almost Famous), the book deals with questions designed to keep readers interested till the very last page.” —Booklist
