David Laskin has produced a masterful portrait of a tragic crucible in the settlement of the American heartland.

The little Ice Age: How Climate Made History 1300-1850 The little Ice Age: How Climate Made History 1300-1850

The Little Ice Age: How Climate Made History 1300-1850 by Brian Fagan.
The Little Ice Age tells the story of the turbulent, unpredictable and often very cold years of modern European history, how this altered climate affected historical events, and what it means for today's global warming. Building on research that has only recently confirmed that the world endured a 500-year cold snap, renowned archaeologist Brian Fagan shows how the increasing cold influenced familiar events from the Norse exploration to the settlement of North America to the Industrial Revolution. In viewing history through the lens of climate, The Little Ice Age brings together a huge range of sources, from the dates of long-ago wine harvests and the business records of the 14th century monasteries to the latest chemical analysis of ice cores. Fagan weaves this information into a story that will fascinate anyone interested in history, weather and how the two interact.
