The Changing North

by Jack Grainge | 01 January 1999
Imagine living through an arctic winter in shelter with no plumbing, not even an outhouse. For two months, the sun does not rise above the horizon, and the temperature locks in below minus fifty. This is the story of Jack Grainge, a civil engineer for the federal government, bringing the people of northern Canada the sanitary conveniences we take for granted. Full of anecdotes and colour photographs, this book provides insight into everyday life in the rapidly-changing North of the 1950s and 1960s.
