About the Author
Ruth and her husband, Larry Bradford, taught school in bush villages in the state of Alaska for several years. They personally experienced deep cold, freeze-up and break-up of the Kuskokwim River, next in size only to the Yukon River. The Bradfords now live in Moriarty, New Mexico. They love traveling, especially as short-term missionaries to an orphanage in the Philippines, but that’s another story.
