In the nineteenth century, one wealthy Boston entrepreneur began selling New England ice all over the world. Gavin Weightman is the author of The Frozen Water Trade, a history of Frederick Tudor and the trials he experienced while shipping ice to countries as far away as India. Weightman joins guest host Joe Palca from London. (Hyperion; ISBN: 078686740X)
