James Raffan: Icewalker

Ice-Walker-Cover-600-197x300James Raffan lives an adventurous life: scientist, voyageur, explorer, author and presenter, he spends something like 200 days a year away from home, all of them doing amazing. We’ve known each other for quite some time now, first (perhaps?) through Shelagh Rogers’ canoe summit, later when I facilitated the donation of the Canoe.ca canoe and most recently through Adventure Canada, where we’ve both worked as shipboard staff on expedition cruises in the Arctic.

I reviewed his previous book, Circling the Midnight Sun for Adventure Canada’s blog.

His latest is Icewalker, telling the story of climate change from the perspective of the polar bear.
