Welcome to Fadedpage.com!
Faded Page is an archive of eBooks that are provided completely free to everyone. The books are produced by volunteers all over the world, and we believe they are amongst the highest quality eBooks anywhere. Every one has been scanned, run through OCR software, proofed, formatted and assembled extremely carefully, using hundreds of volunteer hours. These books are public domain in Canada (because we follow the Canadian copyright laws), but if you are in another country, you should satisfy yourself that you are not breaking the copyright laws of your own country by downloading them. You are free to do whatever you like with these books, but we hope that mainly...you will enjoy reading them.

This is another of our continuing special series of texts covering the ten provinces and three territories of Canada. Today we’re featuring Canada’s newest territory, Nunavut.
Nunavut was the northeastern part of the Northwest Territories, and split from it on April 1, 1999. It is unique in a number of ways. One of them is that Nunavut is composed of about 25 communities (no city) that can only be reached by air or water, and none is connected to any other. The total population is under 40,000 people.
We don’t have any eBooks specifically about Nunavut, since it didn’t exist until recently. Instead, there are a number of eBooks under the term Northwest Territories that cover the former northern part of Canada.
As a lot of Arctic exploration deals with Nunavut, our eBooks include ones like The Siege and Conquest of the North Pole by George Bryce. Those familiar with Sir John Franklin’s search for the Northwest Passage (which goes through Nunavut) may want to check out Arctic Searching Expedition by Sir John Richardson. For a personal story, try perusing Arctic Mood, which recounts the experiences of Eva Alvey Richards during her time serving as a teacher and nurse in remote Arctic areas during the 1920s. We even have a book by Stephen Leacock as part of the Chronicles of Canada series—Adventurers of the Far North: A Chronicle of the Arctic Seas. For these and more follow this link.
