Richard Van Camp recommends Old Town , by Fran Hurcomb.
"My wish for Canadians looking for the perfect welcome to the NWT is Fran Hurcomb's Old Town: A Photographic Journey Through Yellowknife's Defining Neighbourhood . This book took 37 years to create with archival photos braided with a memoir and contemporary portraits. Historians and lovers of northern lore will marvel at the care and time Fran Hurcomb took in honouring the city she loves so much. This book is a history lesson and a love letter all wrapped up into one. Just looking at this book makes me homesick! Mahsi cho! Richard Van Camp is a Tlicho Dene author from Fort Smith, NWT. His novel, The Lesser Blessed, has recently been made into a film. His new book for children is Little You."
