    I wish I could be as adventuresome as Fredston. She does what I couldn' in live without the luxury of bathrooms, tweezers, shaving cream, etc. I enjoyed living though her eyes in a very cold sounding adventure.

    Highly recommended

    This book is funny, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Well written with a fast moving pace. It is part non-fiction adventure, part humorous travel story, and part philosophy.

    Arctic Pleasures

    I took this book out of the library, along with several others. I wasn't particularly interested in it but decided to glance at it just before going to bed. Big mistake. I couldn't put it down and found myself carrying it in the car, to the bathroom, etc. - you get the idea. I particularly loved their encounters with polar bears. "Hey bear!" I'm sorry it's finished and that there are no other similar books to read by Jill Fredston. She takes a subject that could be very technical and makes it into a facinating tale of real-life adventure. It is also a wonderful, intimate story about her own life as well as a love story between a husband and wife. Read this book and find out more!

    Very adventurous people

    I read you book as fast as I could. It was well written. I would like to hear more of your stories about your life. I walk out in the raining, cold and wonder how you made such trips with bears wanting to snack on your heads. May God be with you in your travels.
