Description

Geologist Jack Ives moved to Canada in 1954, and soon after he played an instrumental role in the establishment of the McGill Sub-Arctic Research Laboratory in central Labrador-Ungava. This fascinating account of his fifty-plus years living and working in the arctic is simultaneously a lighthearted, winning memoir and a call to action on the issues of environmental awareness and conservation that are inextricably intertwined with life in the North. Mixing personal impressions of key figures of the postwar scientific boom with the intellectual drama of field research, The Land Beyond is a memorable depiction of a life in science.

Author Biography

Jack Ives has lived and worked in the North for more than fifty years, writing several books and receiving numerous awards, including a Guggenheim fellowship. He currently lives in Ottawa with his family.
