The Northwest TerritoriesBook - 2003
The Northwest Territories is Canada's northern most province. The region's freezing temperatures and harsh landscape make it difficult for humans and all but the hardiest plants and animals to inhabit. But it is also one of the richest sources of gold, diamonds, oil, and natural gas in the world, which has made it an attractive, if difficult to access, destination for explorers. This book discusses the region's environment, few inhabitants, and rich natural resources, while also tracing people's quest to master and exploit this harsh natural world.
