This is one of those little byways of history that I am very happy to have travelled along thanks to the serendipity of NetGalley.

In four men set out on an ill-fated expedition to the Arctic and took along with them a young Inuit woman to be their cook and seamstress. Ada Blackjack was persuaded to go in order to earn money to care for her son.

The text is scattered with sidebars explaining various relevant concepts making this not just the biography of an interesting and courageous woman but an illuminating and educational work of non-fiction as well. One person found this helpful. See more reviews. Languages :.

She never had the opportunity to learn the ways of her people so she was spectacularly unprepared for the conditions on Wrangel Island. And yet she survived. My heart ached for this little expedition.

The four young men Lorne Knight, Milton Galle, Fred Maurer, and Allan Crawford were all in their twenties and boyishly excited to embark on such a grand adventure.

Only Knight and Maurer knew anything about Arctic survival. These were hard to read, knowing that the group was suffering. Stefansson, the backer of the expedition, is infuriating.

He continually tells reporters and the families of the expedition members that the group is safe in the Arctic. He actually wrote a book called The Friendly Arctic, detailing his belief that reports of the inhospitable conditions of the far north are essentially fake news.

His theory states that game is abundant and anyone with common sense can survive. What an insult to his young explorers. She was a very private person but everywhere she went, reporters recognized her and tried to interview her. She was always afraid to speak to anyone about her experiences after that.

She finally spoke out when the man who rescued her published some libelous rumors. Ada and her other crewmates will earn your respect and admiration. If ever there was a woman who took the wrong job, Ada Blackjack qualifies for the honor.

The year was Although there had already been a failed attempt to live self sufficently on Wrangel Island, a silver-tounged adventurer, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, a Canadian, talked four young men into going back to study the wildlife and do weather experiments.

Stefansson would not go. Ada was hired to be a seamstress and housekeeper, so to speak. Although, she was an expert seamstress Ada had been raised in the city by missionaries.

She spoke and wrote English but had never learned the survival techniques of her native peoples. Suffice it to say, Ada got in over her head.

But, gritty to the end, she taught herself how to trap and shoot after she was left alone with one of the dying explorers. Her name was besmirched after she was the only one rescued from a two year entrapment on the island.

Jennifer Niven has researched this book with care and has given us a tale of valor and survival, as well as, deceit and treachery. Ada Blackjack stands as a true heroine in the end.

Becky Wandell. Needed a better editor- but an amazing story of strength and survival, ending in a very bittersweet sadness. Love books about the arctic, even though I hate the cold.

Read most of this book on the sunny slopes of Mt. Kenya though, so that makes sense. I just read Velva Jean Learns to Drive and loved it. I looked up the author and found that she had written this nonfiction book as well which I read a year or so ago. I couldn't believe the same author wrote two such different but wonderful books!

I loved the story of Ada Blackjack; it was truly fantastic. I don't know how I can better describe the book than the summary at Goodreads, so I'm pasting it below.

You'll love it! Only two of the men had set foot in the Arctic before. They took with them six months' worth of supplies on Stefansson's theory that this would be enough to sustain them for a year while they lived off the land itself.

But as winter set in, they were struck by hardship and tragedy. As months went by and they began to starve, they were forced to ration their few remaining provisions.

When three of the men made a desperate attempt to seek help, Ada was left to care for the fourth, who was too sick to travel. Soon after, she found herself totally alone.

Upon Ada's miraculous return after two years on the island, the international press heralded her as the female Robinson Crusoe.

Journalists hunted her down, but she refused to talk to anyone about her harrowing experiences. Only on one occasion - after being accused of a horrible crime she did not commit - did she speak up for herself.

All the while, she was tricked and exploited by those who should have been her champions. Jennifer Niven, author, narrates this true story, taking full advantage of a wealth of primary sources, including Ada Blackjack's never-before-seen diaries, the unpublished journals of other major characters, and interviews with Ada's second son.

Filled with adventure and history - as well as photographs - Ada Blackjack is a gripping and ultimately inspiring tale of a woman who survived a terrible time in the wild only to face a different but equally trying ordeal back in civilization. I should mention at the top that I did not choose this book but my girlfriend gave it to me as a gift, so going in I did not have any expectations.

I suppose I do have some history reading stories about "the wilderness" if you count horror novels like those of Algernon Blackwood, but it isn't a subject that interests me particularly much. With this is mind I was particularly impressed with Jennifer Niven's writing, since she was able to draw me in so well even though the subject matter was not one I was predisposed to getting involved in.

The book does read much like a novel in its first two thirds. There is a lot of suspense, even though you know the ending already, but experiencing the details takes hold of you. Also, the second third reveals itself to be much more emotionally powerful then I would have thought.

A lot of this comes from the personality of Ada Blackjack herself, who is painted as a simple, uneducated but smart and kind woman who is thrust into a situation that forces her to survive against all odds.

The final third of the book doesn't have that storytelling power. In fact, I imagine if this was ever adapted for the screen here is where it would end. There are a lot of threads here to follow, the grief of the families who lost their sons, the cruel and heartless efforts to make money and spin the tragedy by opportunists and Ada's attempt to recover from what happened and move on with her life.

This is all compelling stuff, but Niven stumbles a little trying to turn real life into less of a messy series of events here.

Bunnie O'hara. this is supposed to be a true story and until i got about half way through i thought it rang true. but the part where ada is left with lorne knight i thought was too much-she is depicted as a frightened eskimo woman left alone to tend to one of the men who is sick with scurvy and who eventually becomes bed ridden.

then she is able to shoot birds out of the sky-bring in game from traps that she taught herself to set. build a umiak from canvass- carve oars from drift wood--it is hard to believe she managed to exist six months while this man succumbed to the disease--why didn't ada have scurvy too.

where did she get the tools to do all this construction. of course woman have more fat and probably could last longer that a man but the story left me wondering how she managed this for such a long time.

i too wondered if there was a question of canabalism--something she was accused of in the press later. Michele Millington. Interesting account of four men and one woman who adventured Wrangell Island in the Arctic. The lone survivor was Ada Blackjack. Inspiring story about survival. Fallout was just as interesting.

A little too much detail and redundancy but still interesting. amazing story but writing dragged on wayyy too long. Kind of all over the place.

I wish I had understood what the thesis of this thing was from the start. I had not known of this story going in, so I didn't know what the outcome was gonna be, and it was really interesting reading this, having read many other polar exploration books already, thinking to myself "wow, they don't sound at all prepared for what they're proposing to do.

What's crazy is like, one of them had already been on a previous, and very difficult expedition, and the "leader" of the expedition, who planned it and wanted the glory of the final outcome, was in the explorers club and had been on other trips himself. Like they for sure should have known better.

The other two original members were both green and young and looking for adventure and glory lol. They were told to hire several Inuit families to help them overwinter, hunt and make clothes, but when they couldn't find people to agree, they decided to set off with one woman, who was a city girl and didn't even know how to use a rifle although she was a well known sewer at least.

They only bought six months worth of food, knowing they would overwinter, and decided they would be able to hunt enough to keep them alive. It seemed very clear to me that rather than making the prudent decision to wait until the next season, they just wanted to go forward, too excited for the adventure etc to follow through with their planned preparations.

I have never read an exploration story where I wanted the people to die more. Wow what giant fucking pieces of shit these men were. Like for real. not gonna go into the details but they straight up tortured Ada.

No one in this situation was good. None of the explorers, none of the rescuers. Everyone was total trash, and wanted everything to enrich themselves, or give themselves credit for everything bring glory to themselves personally. Even Ada, though it seems the author wanted us to think she was just a naive, backwoods woman who was taken advantage of at every turn, wasn't necessarily.

I am not sure if she was or wasn't but there were hints that she was also manipulative. One thing I will say about her, every single thing she did was to make sure she had money to get her ill son medical care, and to take care of her children.

The story dragged on for a long time after the expedition, some of which was interesting, but a lot of which became tiresome, as it just continued to reinforce how trash everyone was. Could have been edited down some imo, esp since I assume most people are going into this hoping for a polar adventure, which was at most, half the book.

Still, a good read in general, even though it really wasn't what I thought it was gonna be. short spoilery tldr below: Men go to arctic to prove how manly they are. Take woman to cook and make parkas for them, and also cause they thought she was a prostitute.

Only one person survives the expedition, alone in the winter against polar bears, the cold, and starvation. Guess which one it was. Ada BlackJack an Inuit woman living in Alaska is talked into joining an expedition into the Arctic wilderness with four men.

She was to be their seamstress and cook. She went because her situation was so desperate she was barely surviving on her own and had given up her sickly son. She ends up being the sole survivor of the expedition.

The story of her ordeal and the treatment she received after returning to civilization was compiled from journals, letters, and other documents that the author Jennifer Niven was able to access.

Niven created an interesting story that includes the backgrounds of the explorers and the shady organizer of the expedition Wilhjaimur Steffanson who wanted to claim Wrangel Island for England or Canada even though he had no backing from either country. Ada had to learn to hunt and survive so she could return to her son.

Though some later tried to portray her as a foolish woman and worse, her faith and fear saw here through. Aj Sterkel. Things went badly wrong in the Arctic. When a rescue ship finally reached the stranded explorers two years after they left civilization , Ada was the only explorer still alive.
