About the Author

Carrie Saxifrage is a journalist and author whose work on First Nations responses to the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline has garnered significant critical acclaim. Her research and analytic skills were honed over the course of a successful career as an environmental lawyer in the US. Now she writes for the Vancouver Observer and homesteads on a remote BC island. Carrie's pursuit of adventure and love of nature has taken her up mountains like the Matterhorn and Chimborazo. In 2006 she committed herself to the most life-affirming adventure yet: a low carbon lifestyle.
