Walking On Ice
About This Show
Show Info: Walking on Ice is the first book in a trilogy of memoirs about Emma Stevens’ life-changing decision to leave her beloved New Zealand for bush Alaska: a world of snow and ice, caribou and bears, and the Yup’ik Eskimo people. Emma reads her first memoir on Fresh FM. 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. Walking on Ice is available as a podcast.
