Bonnie McGhie

April 15th, 2024

In 1954, a young California woman, Bonnie McGhie went to the North seeking to escape conventional gender norms. She married a Canadian bush pilot and moved to Inuvik, at the time a new settlement. Housing was in short supply but they made a life for themselves in the remote, inhospitable Canadian Arctic. McGhie recalls her adventures and misadventures in Hard Landings: Chasing a Dream in Canada’s Changing Arctic (self-published $24.99) as she became a co-owner of a charter flying service and a fur trading company in the early 1960s. Later she moved to BC, where she now lives in Chilliwack. 9781738795000
