The Sun is a Compass is an adventure tale from a wildlife biologist who left the lab for a 4,000-mile journey to the Arctic’s edge—traveling across remote and rugged terrain solely by human power—to rediscover birds, the natural world, and her own love of science.

Caroline Van Hemert is an Alaskan biologist, adventurer, and author whose travels have taken her from the pack ice of the Arctic Ocean to the swamps of the Okavango Delta. The Sun is a Compass tells the story of her human-powered trip—by rowboat, ski, foot, raft, and canoe—from Bellingham, Washington to Kotzebue, Alaska. Her research and expeditions have been featured by the New York Times, MSNBC, National Geographic, and more.

This event is in partnership with the North Cascades Institute and is part of NCI's Nature of Writing Series.
