Walking on Ice - A Memoir of Life and Love in the Alaskan Wilderness
Stevens, Emma

Published by Emma Stevens, 2014. Small coffee stain on back cover, otherwise good secondhand condition.

Walking on the Ice is the first book in a trilogy of memoirs by Emma Stevens recounting her adventures in life and love in the Alaskan wilderness.

Convinced by a friend to try on-line dating, Emma is surprised to find herself corresponding with 'Kotzman', the principal of a high school in the Arctic Circle in Alaska. They are worlds apart: while Emma is picking spring flowers, Kotzman is ice fishing; Emma is wrapping up against the chill winds of an Otago winter, while Kotzman enjoys summer caribou camp.

However, as the months pass and the relationship deepens, Emma and Kotzman discover that they have much in common. At the millennium, Kotzman/Gary joins Emma to watch the new century dawn on a NZ beach. When Gary returns the following year on a sabbatical from teaching, their romance really blossoms. This memoir tells the story of Emma's life-changing decision to marry her Alaskan man and leave her beloved New Zealand for a world of snow and ice, caribou and bears, and the Yup'ik Eskimo people.
