Description

"Dueck’s writing is clear and urgent, with the reader-friendliness of a magazine piece, and his photographs are superb, especially when viewed on a Retina screen."
- Kirkus Reviews

In the summer of 2009, Cameron Dueck and the rest of the crew of the Silent Sound completed a journey made by fewer people than have climbed Mt. Everest; they sailed through the infamous Northwest Passage. These waters are normally locked in ice, but due to climate change it is now possible to sail here for a few short weeks each summer.

Their voyage from Victoria to Halifax carried them through raging storms and mechanical breakdowns and took them into sea ice that threatened to crush their yacht’s hull.

But even more important, it brought them face to face with modern Arctic life in the tiny, isolated Inuit communities where the challenge of climate change is added to the already crushing load of social and economic woes.

Join the crew of the Silent Sound with this interactive journey to the front line of climate change – one that melds video, photography, graphics and maps with the rich narrative of Cameron Dueck as well as interesting facts from the World Wildlife Fund.
