My first conscious perception of North and South came years ago at Marsh Lake. I was visiting my friend Verna at the time. Her father Charlie Taylor asked me when I had moved “North” to Whitehorse. I remember considering that perception, I had not prior to this question. I replied.” this is actually a move south for me.” It was not the answer that he was used to.

This concept drew boundaries in my mind that had not existed before. I knew that I lived in the north, but to me the north was anything above the border of the Territories, not a consideration within those boundaries, and anything above that imaginary line was home.

The White Girl Series starts in Fort Norman on the McKenzie River, NWT, Canada, in 1965. In 1789 Alexander McKenzie canoed the then “River of Disappointment,” to the Bering Sea. His disappointment being documented in the title he assigned to the river. Sir Alex had hoped that he would reach the Pacific Ocean via this route.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The white girl I have known about this book for some time now and was hoping that it would fail to make it on to the shelves of any seller. It is highly sensationalized and would perhaps appeal to those who have no real knowledge of the north. (One of her stories talks about the rotting ice of spring time - we all know that ice doesn't rot - it melts !) Don't waste your money on this.
