Circling the Midnight Sun
Culture and Change in the Invisible ArcticBook - 2014
"Over the course of three years, James Raffan circumnavigated the globe at 66.6 degrees latitude: the Arctic Circle. Armed with his passion for the north, his interest in diverse cultures and his unquenchable sense of adventure, he set out to put a human face on climate change. What he discovered was by turns shocking, frustrating, entertaining and enlightening. In Circling the Midnight Sun, Raffan presents a warm-hearted, engaging portrait of the circumpolar world, but also a deeply affecting story of societies and landscapes in the throes of enormous change. Compelling and utterly original, this is both an adventure story and a book that will change your view of the north forever. James Raffan is the past executive director of the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario. He is the author of Emperor of the North: Sir George Simpson and the remarkable story of the Hudson's Bay Company"-- Provided by publisher.
