Launch of The New Northwest Passage: A Voyage to the Front Line of Climate Change (Great Plains Publications).
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.
Each person they met along the way added their story to this colourful tale of life in the Arctic; a unique place where the climate change experience is affected by the critical and ongoing debates over sovereignty, resources and cultural assimilation.
Cameron Dueck’s journalism career has spanned the globe, from North America to Europe and Asia, with regular escapes to sea to satisfy his passion for offshore ocean sailing. Born and raised in Manitoba, Cameron currently lives in Hong Kong, where he spends his weekends sailing.
