It is a region where the reality of daily life is often stranger and more extraordinary than any fiction one could envision. This unprecedented book documents the region through five themes: settlements, architecture, mobility, monitoring, and resources. Many North reveals the challenges and opportunities of building, mobility, and culture in the dispersed communities of the Canadian North, and speculates the emergence of a contemporary northern, or arctic, vernacular.

Many North offers a unique look at Canadas many norths, uncovering the compelling story of northern inhabitation and cultural adaptation through architecture, landscape, and infrastructure development over the past 100 years.
