I remember reading Farley Mowat’s book, The Siberians, and marveling at the cold he described. He said that the people build their houses on the permafrost – which then melts under the heated buildings. The houses begin to sink into the ground causing people to keep rebuilding their homes higher and higher as they keep sinking.

I try to read books like that during the summer when the weather here is steamy. I save stories about tropical isles for the winter.

Here are some people in really cold places . . .
