520    "In 1921, four men ventured into the Arctic for a top-
       secret expedition: an attempt to claim uninhabited Wrangel
       Island in northern Siberia for Great Britain. With the men
       was a young Inuit woman named Ada Blackjack, who had 
       signed on as cook and seamstress to earn money to care for
       her sick son. Conditions soon turned dire for the team 
       when they were unable to kill enough game to survive. 
       Three of the men tried to cross the frozen Chukchi Sea for
       help but were never seen again, leaving Ada with one 
       remaining team member who soon died of scurvy. Determined 
       to be reunited with her son, Ada learned to survive alone 
       in the icy world by trapping foxes, catching seals, and 
       avoiding polar bears. After she was finally rescued in 
       August 1923, after two years total on the island, Ada 
       became a celebrity, with newspapers calling her a real 
       "female Robinson Crusoe." The first young adult book about
       Blackjack's remarkable story, Marooned in the Arctic 
       includes sidebars on relevant topics of interest to teens,
       such as the uses of cats on ships, the phenomenon known as
       Arctic hysteria, and aspects of Inuit culture and beliefs.
       With excerpts from diaries, letters, and telegrams; 
       historic photos; a map; source notes; and a bibliography; 
       this is an indispensible resource for any young adventure 
       lover, classroom, or library"--|cProvided by publisher
