About this title

Synopsis:

Twenty years ago, what the north taught us, we wrote down, and what we didn't know but needed to, we sought out. What we learned, we taught to our children and to our readers. And yet, there is so much more to learn and to teach. Now the teachers are being taught, and the reader is all the better for it. The casual reader, the serious student, or the veteran northerner, can all get something here, because there's something from everybody, something for everybody.

This third edition of the Lost Whole Moose Catalogue has our children writing alongside us. A whole new generation has grown up and the knowledge and wisdom of how to live and learn in the north, the values and ethics we passed on to them, are alive and thriving here, in the land of eight months of snow and four months of bad sledding. Despite the cold.

As time passes, people change and the needs of these people change, too. Now we have articles on recycling (no more dumps!), a special place for teens (no matter how hard we try, we can't stop children from becoming teenagers), more information on newer methods of self-sufficiency (grow yer own, store yer own) and the most fun and most revealing--people of the north writing about people of the north. Who knows better about the north than northerners?

From the Back Cover:

A whole new generation has grown up and the knowledge and wisdom of how to live and learn in the north, the values and ethics we passed on to them, are alive and thriving here, in the land of eight months of snow and four months of bad sledding.

Who knows better about the north than northerners?

So, if you're a life-long northerner, a cheechako from the south, or just passing through on your way to somewhere else, pick up this copy, put up your feet and sit awhile. You'll be better for it, you better believe it. (Jim Montgomery)
