    1. I loved Jean Aspen's first book, Arctic Daughter, and have read it several times. So I was eager to read this second book and enjoy this return to the Arctic with her husband Tom and their son Luke. It seemed especially nice that her son would continue the love affair with the Arctic, bringing the family full circle. As a middle aged woman myself, I identified with her worries that she and Tom were too old and soft to succeed.But my impression throughout the book is that this was HER dream, and [...]

    2. I rated this book "amazing" because so many things that occur in it are so far beyond my ability to handle! Arctic Son chronicles the journey of one family and a friend as they set up housekeeping from the ground up in the deep arctic. After a great deal of thought and preparation, Jean Aspen embarks upon a quest - a word she uses often - to share her experience of the far North with her second husband and young son. They arrange to be dropped off by plane in the middle of the woods with a plan [...]

    3. This is the author's further adventures in Alaska but she is no longer a 20 something. She returns to Alaska but this time with a husband and son and 20 years older. Her aging has an impact on her experience. What a great woman adventurer.

    4. Memoir of a former student at Blanchester High and his family. They travel to Alaska to continue the wife's family tradition of living off the land.

    5. Great stories & details about this woman's life living in the Artic with her husband and young son! AMAZING.
