"The Northwest Passage is an ice-choked waterway with spectacular landscapes and a powerful history of naval endeavour. It is also an unfolding opportunity for adventurous travel, with incomparable scenery and a wealth of wildlife. Over the last decade global warming has opened this fabled passage in late summer for freight and for bold tourists. This is the first book to draw together the rich history with a guide to the region - home for the majority of the world's seabirds, enormous numbers of seals, plenty of polar bears and narwhals and more than enough mosquitoes."--Publisher description.
