Part adventure, part memoir, part policy – always exciting, The Great Unconformity, takes you on a fun, fast paced tour of environmental, political and spiritual issues surrounding sustainability and climate change. Kate Troll, sometimes called “the Naomi Klein of Alaska”, fills her colorful stories with humor, wisdom and hope for a brighter future. With an eye toward the millennial generation, Troll wraps her stories with the wisdom of recognized global thinkers. Troll is an important new voice to the now-or-never discussion on sustainability and climate change. Combining her vast Alaskan experience with her international and national work, Troll shows in her book that there is indeed hope – worldwide climate change can be tackled.

Kate Troll, a long-time Alaskan, has more than 22 years’ experience in climate and energy policy, coastal management, and fisheries. She’s been elected to public office twice and is currently a regular columnist for the Alaska Dispatch News. In between, she climbs mountains, kayaks with the whales, runs wild rivers, and writes screenplays. The Great Unconformity draws in equal measure from her full career and adventurous life.
