Arctic Son: Fulfilling the Dream
2-hour DVD Documentary with Special Features Disc


In the spring of 1992 my husband, Tom, and I flew into Alaska’s remote Brooks Range with our 6-year-old son, Luke, and our friend Laurie. Alone for more than a year, we candidly filmed our lives as we built a cabin and learned to live in this vast and beautiful land. Two decades later, Tom and I produced this very personal documentary about living our dreams. It now shows on PBS stations throughout the country. We are honored to share our Journey with you and those you love.

This two-disc DVD set, for which Alaskan musician Lindianne Sarno composed Arctic Child Suite, includes 46 minutes of Special Features.

Arctic Son: Fulfilling the Dream
Companion Book to our Documentary

“Jean Aspen helps us believe in the power of our dreams...her description of the fragile but magnificent beauty of the Arctic and the life she found there grabs your heart until you start wondering if maybe it’s time to leave it all behind and follow your own dreams.” 

---Barbara Wieser, Rivers Running Free: Stories of Adventurous Women

Tom and I are expanding our creative works, and my books are now nationally distributed. I recently updated Arctic Son: Fulfilling the Dream, available in trade paperback and eBook through Graphic Arts Books. The new edition includes photographs as well as my original drawings. Below is a link with access to on-line stores

We are offering our remaining copies of the original hardback for PBS fundraisers. Graphic Arts Books is now co-distributing our documentary. DVD sets sold through retail outlets match the new book edition cover. Thank you for sharing our Journey.

Currently I am updating my first book, Arctic Daughter: A Wilderness Journey. Long out of print, it recounts my early years of living off the land in the Brooks Range. This edition is scheduled for release next spring, followed by my new book, Trusting the River, about our continuing wild life with our son. In coming years, Tom and I plan to make many of my mother’s books available, including Down the Wild River North, the story of a 3000 mile canoe trip she took with my little sister and me when we were young teens.

Thank you for your continued enthusiasm as Tom and I share our lives with you. We are again spending summer in the wilderness while we begin our next documentary.

 

Wishing you Joy as you follow your own Dreams
