With the warmest clothes I own bundled, I'm at least comfortable as I race across snow-covered trails and onto the Chena River, which is covered with a layer of 2-foot-thick ice. The old sofa cushion on which I am sitting makes the ride easier. Ice crystals, kicked by the 40 paws of 10 sled dogs, […]

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

Most observers of the Amelia Earhart saga are well aware of the longstanding speculation that a plane change gone wrong during one of Amelia’s many stops along the route of her 1937 world-flight attempt might have contributed to the fliers’ doom, or in some way unlock some key aspect of the so-called “Earhart Mystery.”  If only we could locate at least one of these planes, the […]

As a shy high school student, I was more interested in the characters in […]
