Publisher Comments:

No Borders shares the life of Darla Evyagotailak, a 16-year-old Inuk girl. Through Darla's life, readers will get a glimpse into the intricately connected families of Inuit living in the communities of Kugluktuk, Nunavut and Ulukhaktok, Northwest Territories. Although recently divided by the border between the two territories the communities share a common ancestry and their language called Inuinnaqtun. The border is invisible to them however, and as Darla's grandfather tells her, "we are just like the caribou, they don't see the border and neither do we." In No Borders, Darla accompanies her grandmother and great grandparents on a journey which crosses the border between the community of her birth and the lands of her ancestors.


About the Author

Mindy Willett is a mother, an educator, and a passionate advocate for all things northern. This is the eighth book in The Land is Our Storybook series she has coauthored with storytellers from the official language groups of the Northwest Territories. Growing up among the pines of the Canadian Shield in Atikokan, Ontario, helped her feel at home in the NWT. She lives in Yellowknife, NWT with her husband and two children.
Darla Evyagotailak is a 16 year old girl from Kugluktuk, Nunavut. She enjoys soccer, square dancing and her favourite subject in school is drafting. Raised by her maternal grandparents with lots of time spent with her great-grandparents, Darla has had the opportunity to be connected with the strength of her ancestors. In No Borders, Darla accompanies her grandmother and great grandparents on a journey which crosses the border between the community of her birth and the lands of her ancestors.
"Tessa Macintosh is an award-winning northern photographer who raised her family in Yellowknife. In 35 years she has been fortunate to photograph many wonderful northerners and fantastic places across the North. Her photos illustrate the 7 other books in The Land is Our Storybook series, and her work is included in Canadian Shield (2011). She has fond memories of previous visits to Great Bear Lake, beginning 30 years ago, toddler in tow, to photograph Elders making snowshoes."
