About this title

Synopsis:

Records the struggles of a woman who confronted the challenges and hardships of life in the wilderness of northern Canada

From the Back Cover:

When she was nine years old, Olive Fredrickson witnessed her mother's death in the Arctic wilderness. At nineteen, she married a trapper who led her into a perilous life far removed from the comforts of civilization. Told from a harrowing first-person perspective, Fredrickson recounts the hair-raising experiences of her first years in the frozen wasteland that was her husband's hunting ground. When her attempt to run a farm single-handedly, after her husband's death, threatened to end in ruin, Fredrickson walked 40 miles alone to the nearest village, in a desperate attempt to obtain food for her starving family by bartering against future crops. It was a life-or-death journey filled with bears, wolves, and unparalleled danger.The Silence of the North is a story of extraordinary adventure, courage, and human determination in the face of impossible odds. (6 X 9, 240 pages, b&w photos)
