Rowing the Northwest Passage: Adventure, Fear, and Awe in a Rising Sea
by Vallely, Kevin
This is the story of how four seasoned adventurers navigated a sophisticated, high-tech rowboat through the Northwest Passage. One of the "last firsts" remaining in the adventure world, the trip was possible because of global warming in the High Arctic, a fact that became, ironically, an opportunity to draw attention to urgent need for climate change action. The team repeatedly faced life-threatening danger from fierce, unpredictable storms and also weathered gale-force vitriol from climate change deniers who used social media to undermine their efforts.
