A newlywed couple arriving in Northern Alaska in 1942 might have perished in a blinding blizzard during their first dog team trip but for the sixth sense of their Eskimo musher. Other harrowing experiences included landing in a small plane that had lost one wheel in flight, a close encounter with death in a savage storm on the Bering Sea, and being caught aloft in a bush plane during a perilous white out snowstorm. But mostly, Adventure in Alaska is about a decade of hands-on service among the Eskimos in three villages in the land of long summer days and long winter nights - memories of heartache, joy, pathos, humor, friendships, and great rewards.
