Arriving worn out, exhausted, at Cabin 8

Lillian Alling arrived exhausted at Cabin 8 on the Yukon Telegraph Line in 1928. She was nursed back to health by Jim Christie and Charlie Janze who also supplied her with clothes and food for her journey.

She'd been walking through the British Columbia wilderness for more than a month, and who knows except her what sorts of hazards she encountered.

I've really enjoyed writing this chapter. It has made me admire Lillian all the more.
