The book illustrates the planning, construction and growth of Canadas first planned arctic community, beginning in the early 1950s with the search for a new town site on the Mackenzie Delta. The book draws on photo collections from across the country, depicting the creation of a new centre of regional government, a base for resource development, headquarters for aboriginal land claims organizations, schools, health centres, and flourishing cultural organizations. For 50 years, Inuvialuit, Gwichin and southern residents have worked together to build this community, and Inuvik In Pictures is a colourful celebration of their many achievements.
