– From the diary of Ada Blackjack, dated April 1, 1923
Ada Blackjack was an Inupiat woman hailed as a heroine and the “female Robinson Crusoe” after being stranded on Wrangel Island north of Siberia for two years. She was part of an expedition party sponsored by famed explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson. The party included Ada Blackjack, a cat named Victoria, and four men. After battling food shortages, illness, and isolation, Ada and her cat were the only survivors of the expedition.
