Overview

In June of 1947, Alaskan adventurers, Constance and Bud Helmericks, returned to the arctic wilderness in their first airplane. Originally published in 1952, Connie’s fifth book, The Flight of the Arctic Tern, chronicles their lives from constructing a log cabin in the Brooks Range to flying the Arctic coast in search of their Inuit friends. Life is often precarious as the couple wander northeast over polar islands, filming the nomadic peoples of this uncharted land for their first two documentaries. Connie’s earlier books recount the couple’s years spent trekking this unforgiving country by foot, dogsled and canoe. This complete edition of The Flight of the Arctic Tern includes a foreword by their daughter, Alaskan author Jean Aspen.
