The Nunavut Handbook
Travelling in Canada's ArcticBook - 1998
The new territory of Nunavut becomes a reality in 1999, when the Northwest Territories will be divided into two regions. The eastern territory will be called Nunavut, and celebrations planned for this new region promise a large influx of visitors. First published last year, this book is essential reading for anyone planning on making a trip to this fascinating land of snow and ice. Authored largely by Nunavut writers, it is the world's most comprehensive guidebook to this area. In addition to vital travel information and maps, the Nunavut Handbook includes extensive cultural and historical accounts of the Inuit inhabitants, their land claims issues, and, new this year, a political section that explains the structure of Canada's newest territorial government."An amazingly complete and handy directory and guidebook." -the Globe and Mail
