More Information
Breaking the role of Chicago socialite as wife of John Borden, heir to the Borden's Condensed Milk fortune, Courtney Borden accompanied her husband on hunts and became adept at shooting and fishing. The couple, along with a small party, took a five-month voyage to hunt Alaskan brown bear, walrus, and polar bear trophies, some of which would become specimens for Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History. Courtney Borden recorded the events of the trip, and this book is her account of the Arctic adventure, from hunting walrus from a kayak to visits to Native settlements and frontier communities in Alaska.

REVIEW:
"In telling the story of the five-month cruise of the yacht Northern Light, Courtney Borden was clearly aware that she was involved in making a bit of history--not only because such voyages were still relatively rare and certainly dangerous, but also because women were not customarily included in the cast of characters." --Mary Zeiss Stange
