many folks have a psychological photograph of the Canadian north that juxtaposes good looks with harshness. For the Van Tat Gwich'in, the northern Yukon is domestic, with a dwelling heritage handed on from elders to adolescence. This booklet contains oral money owed that the Elders were recording for fifty years, representing greater than one hundred fifty years in their historical past, all meticulously translated from Gwich'in. but this can be greater than a meeting of background; collaborator Shirleen Smith presents context for the tales, whether or not they are concerned with somebody or overseas politics. Anthropologists, folklorists, ethnohistorians, political scientists, economists, participants of First countries, and readers drawn to Canada's northernmost areas will locate a lot to fascinate them.
