Feedback form is now closed.
To most of the world, Canada's Arctic remains a mysterious land of exotic animals, cold temperatures and often misunderstood Indigenous cultures. Robert Feagan separates the myth from reality. Born while his father, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, was stationed in the small Northern community of Fort McPherson, he recounts his experiences growing up in an Indigenous culture, close encounters with polar bear and muskox, climate change, food security, residential school, wellness and much more.
