Presenting “Alice Ada Wood Ellis,” the story of Alice who traveled to Seattle in 1900 on a locomotive steam train to join the Alaska-Yukon-Klondike Gold Rush Stampede. She built a home in Green Lake. Soon after she placed two beds in her front parlor in her home and helped women with birthing. She fulfilled her calling as a pioneer midwife-nurse. This epic saga includes life in 1895 nursing schools, train robbers, birthing in the home, Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition, women’s suffrage, bubonic plague and unclaimed children.
