Margy Johnson

Her father sailed on a leaky liberty ship to Alaska during World War II. He went to Shemya to help build runways to beat back the Japanese invasion. At eighteen, Margy Johnson took a different route than her father. She graduated from high school in 1966, got married, and headed up the Alaska Highway for Alaska with her Air Force husband. But unlike her father, Johnson never left and became a driving force in Alaska’s growth and success.

Each day brings a new awareness of changes in the Arctic region—more ships headed across the top of Russia toward the Bering Strait; an image of dozens of polar bears feasting on a whale carcass in Kaktovik; news that Alaska’s valuable king crab fishery can fall victim to the increased acidification of Arctic waters. The topics are varied, but share a common theme—the Arctic is changing, rapidly, and at a pace that is difficult to keep up with. Rising temperatures affect all regions of the world, but none as drastically or as swiftly as the Arctic, where the loss of ice is leading to profound changes.
