Editorial Reviews

Over the last 30 years, Ed Struzik has established himself as the premier journalist interpreting science and history of the Canadian Arctic. In this remarkably accessible book, he uses the metaphor of traveling through space and time on ten very different Arctic rivers as a vehicle for weaving a mosaic of fascinating accounts of early explorers, Canadian science and scientists, aboriginal people, and his personal adventures. Throughout the book, the lively mix of science and history is kept in focus by his deep personal understanding of this huge, yet hauntingly beautiful part of Canada, gained over many years navigating remote rivers rarely seen by most of us. — Ian Stirling, Senior Research Scientist, Canadian Wildlife ServiceCanada's northern rivers are treasured in the imagination of many people around the world as symbols of wilderness, beauty and adventure. But only a very few have explored their intimate depths the way Ed Struzik has and fewer still can write as well as him. Ten Rivers Runs Through It gives the world an exceptional insight into the nature of these untamed streams, the feelings they evoke, and the romance of northern travel and exploration. — Harvey Locke, Senior Advisor Conservation, Canadian Parks and Wilderness SocietyThe Arctic where Ed Struzik prefers to travel is a vast and beautiful place, and it's almost frighteningly empty. Then he begins telling stories and soon he has filled it up. — Tom Carpenter, Contributing Editor, Canadian Geographic
