Margaret Mead is the best-known anthropologist of all time. She was fascinated by how remote cultures, locked for centuries in a certain way of life, negotiated changes from the modern world. Today, anthropologist Susie Crate studies communities negotiating climate change: melting permafrost, receding glaciers, and rising tides. When people can't stop the world from changing, how do they change themselves? Mead and Crate's daughters interweave stories of what their mothers discover.
