A Year with the Watermen of Vanishing Tangier Island
“I was so impressed with this story of Tangier, an exploration of science, history, religion, and culture driven by emotionally salient commentary from people who live there today. I thought it was particularly interesting to learn that the community is conservative both religiously and politically, but their home is being swept away by rising sea levels thanks to climate change, which is usually a politically charged topic. It was also interesting to have insight into what is likely the United States’ first group of ‘climate refugees’ — terms that are also politically charged. Thoughtfully, lovingly, and intelligently done. An important read!”Chloe Groth, Content
