Downnorth tales
Northern history with a twist!

Acclaimed Northwest Territories’ broadcaster and columnist Randy Freeman has released the first book in his DownNorth Tales series.


The 24 chapters in this book are about real events that took place in and around Yellowknife - a famous and sometimes infamous mining and government community on the north shore of Great Slave Lake in Canada’s Northwest Territories - from the 1930s through to the 1970s.

Beer bottles filled with gold.

In DownNorth Tales: Stories From Yellowknife you’ll read about:

An audacious gold thief.

An even more audacious gold mine scam.

A gumboot-wearing beauty queen.

.... and many more!
