Product Description

Review

'This is a book that needs to be read as the North becomes central to our future. It offers a perspective grounded in the culture and wisdom of northern people, seen through the lens of a remarkable woman as they seek to preserve "The Right to be Cold."' 
—Lloyd Axworthy, academic, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee

"This is a moving and passionate story from a committed woman who has bridged the ice age to the digital age.  Her sophisticated views on the environment and the way the world works from her engaged involvement are brilliant and convincing."
—The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, journalist and former Governor-General

About the Author

Sheila Watt-Cloutier is one of the world’s most recognized environmental and human rights advocates. In 2007, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy work in showing the impact global climate change has on human rights, especially in the Arctic. In addition to her Nobel nomination, Watt-Cloutier has been awarded the Aboriginal Achievement Award, the UN Champion of the Earth Award, and the prestigious Norwegian Sophie Prize. She is also an officer of the Order of Canada. From 1995 to 2002, she served as the elected Canadian president of the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC), and in 2002, she was elected international chair of the council. Under her leadership, the world’s first international legal action on climate change was launched with a petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

This book is not only a wake-up call to the changes in climate that are influencing life in the Arctic Regions and in the rest of the world but it is a good read. It is the story of changes in the lives of Inuit people that happened during the 20th century and are continuing to impact the north and the rest of the world.

The book is an amazing story which educates you concerning our environment an allows you to feel what it is like to be raised Inuit. Both topics are ones that concern us all no matter where we live. Thank you Sheila for making such a difference in so many lives. You are an amazing person.
