Fall History Titles

Uqulurait: An Oral History of Nunavut by John Bennett and Susan Rowley. Actually, not a new book at all, but the paperback publication of a title published in hardcover in 2004 that I missed entirely. Given the depth and detail of Inuit oral history, this ought to be the real northern history.

Update: Inuit oral history is hot this fall. Here's notice of Dorothy Harley Eber's latest book of Inuit testimony, Encounters on the Passage. And see the comment attached here for news of another example, David Pelly's The Old Way North.
