Cameron Duek’s four-month voyage through the Northwest Passage from Victoria in 2009 with the crew of the Silent Sound was achievable due to climate change which now makes it possible to sail these waters for several weeks each summer. His maritime memoir The New Northwest Passage: A Voyage to the Front Line of Climate Change (Great Plains Publications 2012) is important as an environmental study as an unusual portrait of the people and landscape undergoing radical changes in one of the wildest, most fragile parts of the earth.
