About Author:

Jean Aspen

My life began in the Arctic wilds My adventurous parents filmed documentaries and my mother, Constance Helmericks, wrote bestselling books about their lives When I was twenty two, I returned to Alaska s remote Brooks Range with a friend In the spring of 1992 we paddled down the Yukon River and pulled our loaded canoe up a tributary into the mountains Here we built a cabin and spent much of four years living from the land This is the story of my first book, Arctic Daughter a Wilderness Journey, which became a Reader s Digest selection I have always belonged to wilderness As I matured, I yearned to share the beauty and freedom of this life with my husband, Tom Irons, and our young son, Luke In 1992 we invited a woman friend to join us for fourteen months alone in the wilds My second book, Arctic Son Fulfilling the Dream, tells of building our cabin beside the river of my youth, and of our month long canoe journey back to civilization the following summer We recorded our lives and later produced a documentary that has shown on PBS stations across the nation Now in our late sixties, Tom and I make our home in a small Alaskan town, and still migrate back to our cabin each spring for three months afoot in the wilds I will soon publish my memoir, Trusting the River and we are editing the second in a trilogy of documentaries about our lives Our purpose is to encourage others to responsibly embody their deepest longings, to be gracious to one another, and to honor our Planet home I have a baccalaureate degree in biology with honors in English, and one in nursing You may read about our lives and see photos at jeanaspen.Wild Blessings,Jeanie Aspen 2016



Comments Arctic Daughter: A Wilderness Journey

  • Janilyn Kocher

    A great read about surviving the rough Alaska wilderness in the early 1970s. It's a wonder the author and her partner survived that first winter since they waited so long to build a permanent abode. One aspectOf the story that greatly bothered me was how they both treated a pup they brought along, both abusing the poor thing. They eventually treated the dog better, but I felt much indignation for the suffering animal.
