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.
