Keith Ross Leckie è 3 summary

Ies disappear in the remote Arctic region known as the Coppermine North West Mounted Police officer Jack Creed and Angituk a young Copper Inuit interpreter are sent on a year long odyssey to investigate the fate of the lost priests On. I wasn t at all interested in reading Leckie s book which I know realize was silly as I love reading about the North in books such as Elizabeth Hay s Late Nights on Air And this was also an historical murdermystery which again should have caught my attention since I also enjoyed Louise Penney s Bury Your Dead so I am very glad it was chosen by our book club which really is the whole point of being in one to get you to read books you wouldn t choose yourself Coppermine is set during WWI and begins in Edmonton where we meet Corporal Jack Creed of the North West Mounted Police He is sent to the Arctic to investigate what had happened to two Catholic priests who disappeared three years earlier when they went north to bring God to the heathen Eskimos sic Creed hires a young teen aged boy who is half Scottish half Eskimo to act as an interpreter Their journey takes them from Fort Norman to Coppermine on the Arctic Ocean in what is now the territory of Nunavut They paddle and walk thousands of miles from northern Alberta to the shores of the Arctic Ocean where they find the two men who confess to killing the priests It is hard to keep track of the time line but I think the journey north and then back to Edmonton takes well over a year and the relationship between police officer and prisoners and guide changes dramatically during that time The descriptions of the landscape and the Inuit religion and way of life are fascinating The desolation of the north where the natives survive with little access to wood or metal tools their very existence is compared to that of pre historic man The second half of the book is just as fascinating set in the bustling frontier city of Edmonton where the murderers stand trial and Corporal Creed s secret is revealed The book becomes a bit melodramatic towards the end but the story itself is gripping and the characters sympathetic
