A wonderful story - adventure, hardship, endurance, exotic landscape - and even more interesting because it is true.

In 1921 the age of 23 Ada Blackjack agreed to be the seamstress on an expedition with four men to the Wrangel Island. Newly divorced and in need of money she leaves behind her young son. This book is her story, taken from her diaries and oral stories. This book is both heartbreaking and uplifting. She is a woman of character and strength.
