FROM THE BACK COVER: Climate change isn't an abstraction in the far North; it's a reality that has dramatically changed daily life. The author follows two groups as they navigate a radically shifting landscape: the scientists who attempt to decipher its smallest elements and to derive from them a set of abstract laws and models, and the Alaskan natives who draw on uncanny accurate traditional knowledge born of long experience living close to the land. Together, they illuminate a world in flux and a way forward as climate change reaches us all.
