Description

“Traveling in time and space across the Arctic, in The big Thaw Ed Struzik describes at first hand the most alarming environmental crisis of our times,. It’s a land that Struzik is passionate about, and he writes of its frozen beauty with an elegance of prose not seen since Barry Lopez’ Arctic Dreams.” – Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers

“The top of the world is profoundly different than ever before in human history. Climate change is already influencing the lives of the locals, from Inuit to polar bears. But it’s poised to make life hard for the rest of us, too. Ed Struzik gives a canny and compelling tour of a world in dangerous and rapid flux.” – Bill McKibben,   author of Deep Economy

“An irresistible mix of lyrical writing, adventurous feet-on-the-ground travel, solid reporting and acute observation of the dire things that are happening in the Arctic. We should lock every politician and corporate executive into a room and keep them there until they have read and understood the message Struzik is brining us. It is that important.”- Marq De Villiers, author of The End: Natural Disasters, Manmade Castastrophes, and the Future of Human Survival 

“All-embracing, luminous and provocative, The Big Thaw is a fascinating chronicle of an infinite, threatened Canadian Arctic. Struzik expertly melds past and present into a thought-provoking story about what the current global warming means to Canada and the world. He combines the human and scientific narratives into a wonderful synthesis amplified by his won extensive travels through the North. Everyone interested in the implications of a warming planet should read this remarkable book.”- Brian Fagan, archeologist, historian and author of The Great Warming and The Little Ice Age  

“Ed Struzik, one of those rare journalists who can paddle a canoe and enjoy a meal of whale blubber, has written an important and shocking book that reads like some new genre of adventure and horror story. As the Arctic melts and unravels faster than the global banking system, The Big Thaw raises some stark questions: just what will Canada be without ice and snow? And what is a nation without its dreams?” – Andrew Nikiforuk, author of Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of the Continent  

“An important book. Urgent, timely, heartfelt.” – Will Ferguson, author of Beauty Tips Moose Jaw: Travels in Search of Canada
