Review of Cobb's Ice Harvest

Just the description of this made me want to listen. The concept of harvesting ice is a little odd but makes a lot of sense. Like with wheat or grain, ice sold to markets was a viable industry up until the 1900. The piece is very interesting as a description of this industry lost to technology but traditions preserved. It would run well in the north east or the midwest as it speaks to tradition, harvests, and different ways to use the earth. Very interesting piece.
