REFRACTION PRE-ORDER NOW AVAILABLE
March 15 , 2022
The official release of Bruce Rettig’s book, Refraction, is November 15, 2022, and the book is published by Wayfarer Books, an Eco-Lit imprint of Homebound Publications. Homebound is a partner of One Tree Planted, and for every book they sell in their store (not every order, every book) a tree is planted. Refraction recounts the experience of working in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, a remote Arctic outpost and home to the largest oilfield in North America. It provides an intimate insight into the power of Big Oil, the dangers of an industrial environment, and living with fellow laborers in an isolated work camp. The book will be available at large retailers and Amazon, but the author recommends buying directly at the Wayfarer online store to continue to support independent publishers and bookstores.

In his 20s, Bruce Rettig worked at least 12 hours each day of the week—on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. “We were trapped in a time warp, interactions almost exclusively limited to the confines of a camp consisting of seven barges and 10 tugboats anchored off a thin spit of land jutting into the Arctic Ocean,” he states in his new nonfiction novel “Refraction.”
