How we can learn about ecological solutions from an ancient culture? Ladakh, or Little Tibet, is a wildly beautiful desert land high in the western Himalayas. It is a place of few resources and an extreme climate. Yet, for more than a thousand years, it has been home to a thriving culture. Then came development. Centuries of ecological balance and social harmony are under threat from modernization. The breakdown of Ladakh’s culture and environment forces us to re-examine what we really mean by progress.

BORDERLAND: Sea Kayaking Croatia

$20.00$40.00

Croatia is Border Land. The country lays on the geographic margin between central Europe and the Balkans, between the Adriatic and the Continent. Its very shape speaks of the divide.

At no point is Croatia more than a few hundred miles wide; in most places it is much less. Our goal was to kayak its length, through the 1,246 islands lying like marbles atop what astronauts claim is the bluest sea on the planet, the Adriatic.
