Review by Dakota Erutse
At the surface of the Sahtu region there are no simplistic environmental influences. You can walk on rock-hard edges for a time, and later feel your weight pressing softly down on bog. You may even meet a herd of caribou as you approach a riverbank and look down on the snowy river. There is the deep chill and the sun’s dreary nonappearance during the winters, and the long stretch of heat and the sun’s stubborn drift during the summers. There are elusive moose and provocative mosquitos, towering grizzlies and flying geese. In this area, acuity and knowledge are imperatives for a step into the wilderness.
