Nesting On The Nushagak is the 2nd book in a trilogy of memoirs which are part romance and part “girl’s own adventure”. It picks up the story as Emma and her new husband begin married life teaching in a remote Yup’ik Eskimo village in SW Alaska where they face the isolation, bitter cold, and semi-dark of the long Alaskan winters. For adventurous romantics and arm-chair travellers alike.
Having recently married the man she met online, New Zealander Emma Stevens, follows her new American husband to a teaching post in a remote Yup'ik Eskimo village in southwestern Alaska. In this harsh climate she joins the local people in their subsistence way of life, gathering and storing food during the extended summer daylight hours in preparation for the grim realities of the bitter cold, semi-darkness and isolation of the long Alaskan winters.
Written with humor in the face of unexpected and at times life-threatening situations, Nesting on the Nushagak, the sequel memoir to the popular Walking on Ice, transports the reader deep into the heart of the Alaskan wilderness and the people who live there.
