Maine to Greenland: Exploring the Maritime Far Northeast

191 DKK

Description

Maine to Greenland is a great story about William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard explorations of the Northeast’s Atlantic corridor and its fascinating history, habitat, and culture!

This fully illustrated with 350 Richard’s stunning photographs show readers this vibrant region, joining Smithsonian archaeological expeditions and trekking in vast and amazing terrain.  Following Fitzhugh and Richard’s travels north—from Maine to the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland and northern Quebec, then to Labrador, Baffin and Ellesmere islands, and Greenland—we view incredible landscapes, uncover human history, and meet luminous personalities along the way.

Maine to Greenland is the first in-depth treatment of the Northeast Atlantic corridor and essential for armchair travelers, locals, and tourists. In today’s changing world and opening of the Arctic Ocean have transformed the Maritime Far Northeast from an icy frontier into a global resource zone and an increasingly integrated international crossroads.

It is a great way to learn about the Maritime Far Northeast and how its variety of cultures have adapted to rather than changed their environments during the past ten thousand years.

Maine to Greenland is not only a complete account of the region’s unique culture and environment but also a timely reminder that amidst the very real consequences of climate change, the inhabitants of the Maritime Far Northeast can show us grounded and sustainable ways of living.
