What is Kobo Super Points?
The book is much larger than that, of course: Adams points out that Alaska -- the North as a whole -- is one of the places feeling the effects of global warming most severely, and illustrates his point with eyewitness views of its effects on his daily life, backed up by statistics and analysis. He doesn't preach, though: It becomes an understated and very powerful elegy. It's also about the act of creating, which I have to confess I found the most exciting part of the book: In fact, Adams has provided here a unifying thread for many endeavors and in a larger sense is giving us all a new connection to the world.

ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. The wind brought to her the voices of her ancestors, the old ones, who taught that true wisdom lives far from humankind, deep in the great loneliness. As she traveled, she listened to the voices of the land, voices speaking the name of each place, carrying the memories of those who live here now and those who have gone. As she listened, she came to hear the breath of each place — how the snow falls here, how the ice melts—how, when everything is still — the air breathes.
The drums of her ears throbbed with the heartbeat of this place, a particular rhythm that can be heard in no other place. Often, she remembered the teaching of an old shaman, who spoke of silam inua — the inhabiting spirit, the voice of the universe. Silam inua speaks not through ordinary words, but through fire and ice, sunshine and calm seas, the howling of wolves, and the innocence of children, who understand nothing.
In her mind, she heard the words of the shaman, who said of silam inua: The heart of winter: Darkness envelopes her — heavy, luminous with aurora. The mountains, in silhouette, stand silent. There is no wind.
