“Welcome to paradise,” Kevin Jack says. Thus begins my tour of a property that edges onto the swampy back of Marsh Lake. An old gold mining site, it is a refuge for old gold mining things: a tiny log cabin with grass growing out of the roof; ... more

I recently re-visited Holland, the country I grew up in. I have learned over the years, in speaking to fellow ‘Dutches’, that how I experienced things in my childhood - or, for that matter, when I go back to the place I spent my childhood... more

Like many other Yukon dogs, Eddie is of mixed pedigree. He’s a Heinz 57. Or as some people like to call it, a mutt. But to me, he’s 100 per cent handsome. Eddie is not really a Yukon dog, but don’t tell him that! He came north with our family in... more

In the summer of 2002, a friend and I were travelling back from Haines, Alaska to Whitehorse. A few miles before Haines Junction we noticed several cars stopped on the highway. I thought there must be an animal by the road that had attracted ... more

Germany: a land of farms and old cities, and the destination of my travels every two years. It is a land with a past. Most towns here still hold scars of war in the form of bunkers that are sprawled throughout the country. A reminder of what once... more

“Never heard of it!” That was my first thought when my aunt said Yukon Territory. Other than knowing it was part of Canada and that I had family there, I was clueless about my possible new address. So I did my homework; I Googled. more

What’s an English teacher to do once she retires: take a trip through the Northwest Passage? Ruth Armson did that, and wrote about it. Compile an autobiography, perhaps? She did that, too. “I’d been away from home since I was 15, and I thought ... more
