Way Down North
Number of pages: 128
100 photos of Canada's hardy northern peoples and landscapes by one of its most eloquent and best known storytellers.
Rene Fumoleau, long recognized as one of the most inspiring voices of Canada's North, offers his lush and startling collection of photos organized into sections reflecting each of the four seasons. Way Down North is a collector's item for anyone fascinated by the richness and spiritual depth of Canada's northern landscape and culture.
If we were to see the world from the Dene perspective, Way Down North describes their geography as suggested by the way the MacKenzie River flows - north into the Beaufort Sea. This is truly a land of great beauty evoking the greatness of God's creation.
Rene Fumoleau was born in France and came to northern Canada as an Oblate priest in 1953. He has chronicled the Dene way of life in his poems, stories, films, and photographs. In 1975 Rene Fumoleau was brought to national attention by his critically acclaimed study of native treaties in Canada: As Long As This Land Shall Last. He is the author of Here I Sit (Novalis 2004).
