it was amazing

This book is a very valuable addition to the history of the Canadian North and provides an understanding of how the Arctic land mass and islands came into possession of Canada. This is especially relevant today as many "interests" are coveting the vast deposits of oil, gas and minerals now known to be there. The Author's research details the many Expeditions sent to the Arctic and the long arduous process of actually claiming the large and small islands and setting up the Port of Churchill on Hudson Bay. Very good read.
