Boundless : adventures in the Northwest Passage

Winter, Kathleen2016
Books, Manuscripts
In 2010, Kathleen Winter took a journey across the legendary Northwest Passage, connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, alongside marine scientists, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and curious passengers. From Greenland to Baffin Island, and all along this arctic passage, she bore witness to the new mathematics of the melting North - where polar bears mate with grizzlies, creating a new hybrid species; where the earth is on the cusp of yielding so much buried treasure that five nations stand poised to claim sovereignty of the land; and where the local Inuit population struggles to navigate the tension between taking their part in the new global economy and defending their traditional way of life.
