Please join us for an online discussion of Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic by Jennifer Niven.

Please register to join us for an online discussion of Ada Blackjack: A True Story of Survival in the Arctic by Jennifer Niven.

In September 1921, four young men and Ada Blackjack, a diminutive 25-year-old Eskimo woman, ventured deep into the Arctic in a secret attempt to colonize desolate Wrangel Island for Great Britain. Two years later, Ada Blackjack emerged as the sole survivor of this ambitious polar expedition. This young, unskilled woman--who had headed to the Arctic in search of money and a husband--conquered the seemingly unconquerable north and survived all alone after her male companions had perished.
