BeschreibungIn 2010, bestselling author Kathleen Winter took a journey across the legendary Northwest Passage. From Greenland to Baffin Island and all along this arctic passage, Winter witnesses 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. In breathtaking prose charged with vivid descriptions of the land and its people, Kathleen Winter¿s Boundless is a haunting and powerful story: a homage to the ever-evolving and magnetic power of the North.
PressestimmenA lively interactive account [of] the native culture of Greenland, the human pathos of small mementoes of failed polar expeditions and the larger, legendary Arctic landscape in meltdown.
