The Lost Origins of The Snowman
de Sandy Kinnee
Acerca del libro
This is a book intended for adults, not children.
The topic is bloodless sacrifice. It is not about nostalgic fun in the snow.
The task of building sacrificial snowmen is left to children.
There is a reason for this; which is rooted in creating a pure offering to the gods.
The book also touches upon the annual sacrifice of a
Snowman King across Switzerland.
