Ed Struzik Travels in the Melting North

For over a year, Struzik traveled on eleven trips throughout Alaska, Canada’s Arctic territories, and Greenland to document this rapidly changing world. The veteran journalist gained unprecedented access to scientific expeditions, native communities, as well as security and sovereignty experts. THE BIG THAW details Struzik’s observations of receding glaciers, dwindling herds, and invading species symptomatic of a world in decline.

Struzik goes into the field with the world’s leading polar bear scientist, skis on melting glaciers with glaciologists, travels the Northwest Passage on an aging icebreaker, and stalks a carnivorous rogue walrus with an Inuit hunter. His journeys bring him up close to some of the world’s most unique animals, from the iconic polar bear to the mysterious narwhal to the prehistoric-looking muskox.
