Book Description:

Libby Beaman was the first American woman to travel to the Alaskan Pribilof Islands. Based on her diary, the tale of Libby, her husband, and the powerful first officer is told in all its passion. 20 line drawings.

About the Author:

Betty John (1907-1997) authored three children's books, "Hummingbirds", "El Captano Pelicano Café", and "Seloe", which is based on Libby's notes about the seals' life cycle. She served as a war correspondent during World War II, and her experiences gave rise to her book Flak Bait. In addition, she wrote plays, magazine articles, and an internationally syndicated medical column.

Betty John was perhaps best known as the founder, with her late husband Dr. Henry J. John of the first camp for diabetic children. As a designer-craftsman she also won international awards for her liturgical enamels.
