True North Rising

22

Long time CBC radio and television journalist Whit Fraser’s new book is a memoir of a remarkable period in Canada’s North and his lasting friendships with indigenous leaders who, against tremendous odds and with unwavering personal determination and commitment, changed Canada’s mindset and reconfigured the map of the North. True North Rising is not just about politics. It includes personal moments filled with warmth, and sometimes humour, from a log home beside a magnificent northern river, at a dinner table in a High Arctic seniors’ home, and amid the ice floes of northern Greenland.
