Children's LiteratureThe Yukon Territory measures 186,660 square miles in area, but only six of its communities have populations over 500. These and other eye-catching facts are shared in this well-written reference book. Wonderful photos ably support the interesting text, which bristles with references to Robert W. Service, the midnight sun, the Hudson's Bay Company, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Klondike Gold Rush and other intriguing topics. LeVert does justice to this terrific source material, in a writing style that's descriptive yet not hyperbolic. Part of the "Canada in the 21st Century" series, this book is a nifty resource for libraries and classroom bookshelves. 2001, Chelsea House Publishers/Haights Cross Communications, Ages 9 up.
