KETCHIKAN — Biz Robbins and her husband, Don, were teachers in Colorado when Don told Biz he was moving to Alaska.
His question: Did Biz want to go, too?
For Biz, who’d become aware of his Alaska dream during their three years of marriage, there was but one response.
“Our marriage was good, and I wanted to keep it, so I followed him,” she wrote.
Their arrival in Ketchikan on July 31, 1978 — their fifth anniversary — set in motion the events detailed in Biz Robbin’s new book, “Life Jacket: A Memoir of a Float Camp Teacher.”
