GRAND WINNER

ECOLOGY & ENVIRONMENT

The Archipelago of Hope
Gleb Raygorodetsky
Pegasus Books 

 

An enlightening global journey reveals the inextricable links between Indigenous cultures and their lands―and how it can form the foundation for climate change resilience around the world.  In addition to sharing the stories and traditional wisdom of these people, The Archipelago of Hope outlines a way for us all to be allies with Indigenous communities and their work.  Proceeds from the sale of this book go to The Archipelago of Hope Fund, via Land is Life, to support communities profiled in this book. The Nautilus Staff is proud to announce that Gleb Raygorodetsky, as author of our Grand Prize Winner, will receive a Cash Prize of $2,500 to further support his work.
