UBC Press' Sesquicentennial Book List

To contribute to the dialogue around Canada's sesquicentennial, UBC Press is showcasing a curated selection of our books that reflect the richness and diversity of our country. The list has been chosen by staff and friends of UBC Press.

Far Off Metal River
Inuit Lands, Settler Stories, and the Making of the Contemporary Arctic

Emilie Cameron

In Far Off Metal River, Emilie Cameron challenges her readers to reconsider their perceptions of the "Great White North" by pointing out how settlers' stories about how North as a barren, hostile, largely desolate place have made it easy to justify two centuries of economic and environmental exploitation. Cameron urges her readers to consider the social, political, and economic motives behind these stories, and to seek out alternative stories about the North from the people who have lived there since time immemorial. This is a thought-provoking book about the power of stories, the legacy of colonialism, and our ability to challenge myths we harbour about our nation.
