GLOSSARY
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
You will want to read this book:
it is funny, sad, informative, provocative, accessible, absorbing. TRUer NORTH is a timely introduction to Inuit communities of the three major regions of Nunavut as they face social, technological, economic, educational, and employment challenges after five thousand years of nomadic tradition—and little more than fifty years of modernization.
• Essentially a work of creative non-fiction; two powerful short stories near the end.
• Dunphy takes readers on his personal journey through three stages of culture shock.
• Original format and style engages readers in fresh, recent experiences.
• Diary entries capture the excitement of travelling into the unknown.
• Nunavut Moments bring Dunphy’s readers into the hearts, homes, and haunts of Inuit.
• Nunavut’s history, tradition, and achievement is hopeful, but Nunavut faces some serious
issues.
This book offers glimpses into the soul of Nunavut and its people. Dunphy’s closing reflections on
six key issues lead his readers to embrace one of Canada’s greatest opportunities—to develop a
nation that truly encompasses all Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

About the Author
The rich waters of Indian River nourish the fertile red soil, the sea, and the people of Prince Edward Island. From fictional and non-fictional stories, lasting truths emerge about character and survival, families and relationships, family origins and personal destinies. “Indian River is a genuinely charming narrative which puts heart and soul into the dry bones of genealogy. In this enchanting collection of stories and reflections, author John Dunphy reprises the lives of his antecedents in down-to-earth character portrayals. His account leads readers along a warm family trail, carrying the MacLellans from Scotland and the Dunphys from Ireland to a common destination centred around the Atlantic Canadian settlement of Indian River on Prince Edward Island. It’s about family and fun all the way into modern times. A refreshing
read.”
Fred Hazel,

The Telegraph-Journal
“John Dunphy’s ‘Bella’ is a marvelous creation—or perhaps I should say ‘recreation,’ as she comes so much to life a reader has to think she was once very much truly alive somewhere in Dunphy’s past. His evocation of life on Prince Edward Island, of the ebb and flow of the ocean as well as of the fascinating MacLellan family is the stuff of good reading. Sit back and enjoy.”
