Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic
Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic4,5 2 5 Forfatter: Jennifer Niven Oplæser: Laural Merlington
Following her triumphant return to civilization, the international press proclaimed her the female Robinson Crusoe. But whatever stories the press turned out came from the imaginations of reporters: Ada Blackjack refused to speak to anyone about her horrific two years in the Arctic. Only on one occasion–after charges were published falsely accusing her of causing the death of one her companions–did she speak up for herself.
Jennifer Niven has created a compelling history of this remarkable woman, taking full advantage of the wealth of first-hand resources about Ada that exist, including her never-before-seen diaries, the unpublished diaries from other primary characters, and interviews with Ada's surviving son. Ada Blackjack is more than a rugged tale of a woman battling the elements to survive in the frozen north–it is the story of a hero.
