I was amazed - totally blown away - by how important the opening Arctic is to America and the world, and I was fascinated by this on the ground, behind the scenes look at how an oil company operates there. The author is always there; at the Eskimo hunting camp, on an icebreaker with scientists, in the Senate, on a dogsled, at oil company Arctic headquarters, with the Eskimo leaders in their offices, homes and celebrations, and even at a Navy war game about the Arctic. The characters come alive. The issues effect us all. The horrible question about balancing energy development with protecting the environment is felt by the Inupiats with a terrible intensity. Read this book.

Reiss gave us the Coming Storm, long before global warming became a popular international issue. Well, the consequences continue as the Arctic responds to this new environment. The Eskimo and the Oil Man will bring you up to speed on the economic and social issues that are driving this region.
