Beautifully written, gripping non-fiction account of terrible injustice and human rights violations of the worst kind against several Inuit families who were, in 1953, forcibly relocated by the Canadian government, from their home on the Hudson Bay to the barren, arctic landscape of Ellesmere Island, 1,200 miles to the north, the most northerly landmass on the planet. Extremely informative and very moving.
