Bishop Barry Valentine, who served in the diocese of Rupert's Land from 1970 to 1982, died on Oct. 16  at the age of 82. In his tenth year as bishop in 1979, he told the 'Rupert's Land News' that he counted among his most important achievements ' the quality of openness in our decision-making , in our relationships, in our commitment and in our participation, which is of fundamental importance for our community and for our mission in ministry'."

'Echoes Into Tomorrow' is a development of the first book 'Echoes from a Frozen Land'. It shared with us an historical record of a period of rapid and extraordinary change in our Canadian Arctic during this century. Donald B. Marsh kept records, wrote many articles authenticated by superb photography and artifacts and had basically put these into book form when accidental death in 1973 prevented this being accomplished, and terminated his service and devotion to his God and to the Eskimos. .... In 1950 he became the Second Bishop of the Arctic, a position which gave him greater influence and exposure in Canada and overseas to act as their advocate. The years 1950-1973 represent such a critical period in Arctic history and occupy much of the substance of the book". -- Foreword.
