"In this gripping first-hand account, four seasoned adventurers navigate a sophisticated, high-tech rowboat across the Northwest Passage. One of the "last firsts" remaining in the adventure world, this journey is only possible because of the dramatic impacts of global warming in the high Arctic, which provide an ironic opportunity to draw attention to the growing urgency of climate change."--

Disappointing as an adventure story. Poorly written. No map. No schematic of boat. Little description of natural world. The author seems to have jumped on the environmental bandwagon in order to secure sponsorship and readership.
