On Her Own Terms

This chapter is a brief discussion on Alexander's first expedition to Alaska in 1906. It notes the disadvantages of her expedition, namely the swarms of mosquitoes and the fact that she and her companions had to walk around in rubber boots. One benefit of the expedition was the lovely scenery that surrounded them during their stay. The chapter states that the expedition was for the collection of bears, and Alexander and her companions spent four months traversing the Alaskan wilderness. It stresses that the details of the expedition are unclear, but Alexander was able to collect specimens of mammals and birds.
