Description

Larry Audlaluk has seen incredible changes in his lifetime. Born in northern Quebec, he relocated with his family to the High Arctic in the early 1950s. They were promised a land of plenty. They discovered an inhospitable polar desert.

Sharing memories both painful and joyous, Larry tells of loss, illness, and his family’s fight to return home, juxtaposed with excerpts from official government reports. With refreshing candour and an unbreakable sense of humour, Larry leads the reader through their struggle to survive and through a life between two worlds as southern culture begins to encroach on Inuit traditions.

Larry was inducted into the Order of Canada for his years working as an ambassador for the people of Grise Fiord, Canada's northernmost civilian settlement, and is the community's longest-living resident.
