Reviews


"A stirring narrative of protest and government oppression."
--"Publisher's Weekly"
"Enormously compelling and important, Stewart's account commands attention on each and every powerful page."
--"Booklist" (starred review)
"The story you are about to read is extraordinary. It is one of fear, hope, despair and humanity. But we still don't know how it ends. That is up to all of us. Including you. Please encourage your friends to help bring a hopeful conclusion to this moving story."
--Paul McCartney
"The Arctic is in grave danger. This terrific book illuminates, with thriller-like pace and crackling humor, the story of thirty people who risked their freedom for its protection. Anyone who admires direct action, wants to know what to do about the peril we are all in, or who cares about the future of their children should read it now."
--Emma Thompson
"A riveting adventure story, with real-life heroes and planet-sized stakes."
--Bill McKibben, author of "Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet"
"A fascinating tale of bravery in the face of totalitarian cruelty. A true page-turner and an important book for our times."
--Gary Shteyngart, author of "Little Failure and Super Sad True Love Story"
"A gripping story of tremendous courage that reads like a thriller. By putting their bodies on the line to stop the drilling, the Arctic 30 became global symbols for a resurgent climate movement, one willing to do whatever it takes to close down new fossil fuel frontiers. This is real heroism, and Stewart's excellent account will surely inspire many others to join the fight for a humane and livable planet."
--Naomi Klein, author of "The Shock Doctrine"
