Dahr Jamail has journeyed along many of the geographical front lines of our environmental crisis, from Alaska to Australia's Great Barrier Reef to the Amazon rain forest, to discover the consequences of the loss of ice to nature and to humans. The End of Ice is the firsthand chronicle of his travels, during which he scaled Denali, the highest peak in North America, swam in warm crystal waters around Pacific coral reefs, explored the tundra of St. Paul Island and spoke with some of the last subsistence seal-hunters of the Bering Sea. Accompanied by climate scientists and people whose families for centuries have fished and farmed in the various places he visits, Dahr begins to accept the dark fact that earth is almost certainly in a hospice situation. Ironically, this renews his passion for the planet's wild places, cherishing the earth in an entirely new way. Like no other book, The End of Ice offers a true narrative that includes photographs throughout by Dahr of his journey across the world, of the catastrophic reality of our predicament, and the incalculable necessity of relishing this vulnerable planet while it is still possible.
