The Rising Tide
By Tom Bamforth (Hardie Grant Publishing)
Tom Bamforth is a writer and aid worker who has been travelling and reporting from the Pacific Islands since 2008. This book, a mix of memoir, journalism and cultural commentary, puts the islanders themselves at the forefront of climate change. By sharing their stories of love for their land and survival after severe climate events, such as floods, Bamforth lets the islanders speak, and shines a light on what climate change is doing to the Pacific Islands.
