520    "The Dene have lived in the vast Mackenzie River Valley 
       since time immemorial, by their account. To the Dene, the 
       land owns them, not the other way around, and it is 
       central to their livelihood and very way of being. But the
       subarctic Canadian Northwest Territories are home to 
       valuable resources, including oil, gas, and diamonds. With
       mining came jobs and investment, but also road-building, 
       pipelines, and toxic waste, which scarred the landscape, 
       and alcohol, drugs, and debt, which deformed a way of 
       life. In Paying the Land, Joe Sacco travels the frozen 
       North to reveal a people in conflict over the costs and 
       benefits of development. The mining boom is only the 
       latest assault on indigenous culture: Sacco recounts the 
       shattering impact of a residential school system that 
       aimed to "remove the Indian from the child"; the 
       destructive process that drove the Dene from the bush into
       settlements and turned them into wage laborers; the 
       government land claims stacked against the Dene Nation; 
       and their uphill efforts to revive a wounded culture. 
       Against a vast and gorgeous landscape that dwarfs all 
       human scale, Paying the Land lends an ear to trappers and 
       chiefs, activists and priests, to tell a sweeping story 
       about money, dependency, loss, and culture-recounted in 
       stunning visual detail by one of the greatest cartoonists 
       alive"--|cProvided by publisher.
