Lecture by Peter Matthiessen

One of America’s most distinguished living authors, Peter Matthiessen has written books probing the negative impacts of our technological, profit-driven society on both the environment and on indigenous cultures around the world. A two-time National Book Award winner for his travel journal The Snow Leopard and his novel Shadow Country, Matthiessen has turned an unflinching eye on some of the most controversial issues of our time. For this National Geographic Live appearance, he will discuss an issue of special concern: the impact of climate change on the indigenous cultures of the far north, where warmer temperatures and a shrinking ice pack pose a direct threat to a way of life thousands of years old.
