Product Description

Details

The Open Passage Expedition successfully sailed through the Northwest Passage during the summer of 2009. The crew not only succeeded in a sailing some of the most dangerous waters in the world, but also learned more about the people and their land. The Arctic is garnering global attention because climate change is melting its sea ice at a rapid pace, affecting the communities and the wildlife they rely on for food and livelihood. The crew of the Silent Sound set off from Victoria, BC. Four months and four days later they docked in Halifax, on the opposite side of Canada, with a tale to tell.

Press Reviews

"Lots of people dream of quitting the rat-race, buying a boat and sailing away to the Caribbean or the South Pacific. But few do the first two and then embark on a voyage through the Northwest Passage. Hats off to Cameron Dueck: he acted, made good, and now he's written a compelling book about it." Ken McGoogan, author of The Fatal Passage Quartet "In an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones, Cameron Dueck sets out to find the 'Arctic Grail.'" - Michael Byers, author of Who Owns the Arctic? "The book is an engrossing string of vignettes about life in the real Arctic, not the Arctic of tourism brochures and adventurers' tales. Dueck has a faithful and sympathetic ear for the people of the Arctic and how their lives are changing." - Clive Tesar, World Wildlife Fund "Cameron Dueck's account of this journey makes a wonderful read - exciting, amusing, and above all, interesting." - E.C. Pielou, author of A Naturalist's Guide to the Arctic
