Farmington native publishes a tale of true-life adventure
Bonnie Ward was 26 years old and working a good job in 1981 when her husband, Sam, came home with an announcement that would change her life. He had put their home on the market, he said, and given his notice at work. They were moving to Alaska.
The announcement wasn’t a complete surprise. The couple had talked about Sam’s dream of living off the land in the Alaskan wilderness. But for Ward, it was a plan for someday. Not right away.
