Robinson (p. 136) calls this book "the most spectacular" of her adventures: "she took a cargo vessel from Manchester to Vancouver, then a mixture of river boat, train, and four-seater airplane up to Nome; she cadged lifts from a tiny 10-ton trading vessel and a local motor boat to Sandspit Island, north of Point Barrow, and then joined a husky team to her destination of Herschel Island...On the way home--just for fun--she spent two weeks at a reindeer camp in the Mackenzie Delta." An appendix includes an annotated list of plants collected. Arctic Bib. 7598.
