"The Opposite of Cold" is an exquisite commemoration of the history, culture and practice of Finnish sauna in the north woods. With stunning photographs of unique and historic saunas of the region -- including the oldest sauna in North America, incredible surviving saunas from immigrant farmsteads, and the gorgeous contemporary saunas. Through this book we see why Finnish sauna tradition is vital and enduring, from the warmest summer evenings to the coldest winter nights.
