When she was nine years old, Olive Fredrickson witnessed her mothers 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 husbands hunting ground. When her attempt to run a farm single-handedly, after her husbands 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.
