Reviews

At the end of a high-level career in climate science, David Goodrich cycled from Delaware to Oregon looking for a "hole in the wind"--a human future in the unrelenting march of climate change.
Entertaining and instructive, Goodrich's travelogue showcases one man's heroic efforts to confront this century's greatest environmental crisis.
A detail-rich chronicle. The miles fly by.
This cyclist's view of how things really are effectively cuts across head-butting arguments about global warming. A compelling narrative enlivened as much by the author's encounters on the road as by his skillful unfolding of scientific knowledge.
