Wilma: An Alaska Tale of One Teacher, Two Teenagers, and Three Wolverines combines Alaska adventures and teenage life in the 1970s. It is the story of Pam Walker, Tom Lerner, and their junior high school biology teacher, William Marx. The action moves from an Anchorage classroom to the hilarious capture of a female wolverine named Wilma in the Alaska wilderness. A side trip to a science fair in Texas, a thrilling hunting expedition and a developing romance all culminate on a very realistic note. The antics of Wilma’s kits, Wendy, and Willy, weave in and out of the narrative. The result is a young adult novel that is both entertaining and educational. There are very few wolverine novels published and those that do exist contain many inaccuracies. This story will give the reader an accurate understanding of this wary and difficult to observe animal. Students will be encouraged to get involved in their local science fairs.

Dona Agosti, born and raised in Donnelly, Minnesota, studied journalism at the University of Minnesota and lived for various periods in Hollywood, Minneapolis, New York City, Denver, and Berlin, Germany.

Dona's oldest daughter, Nancy, grew up in Los Angeles. Dona loved the Alaska outdoors, was an avid backpacker, and enjoyed cross-country skiing. She served as hiking chair for the Mountaineering Club of Alaska for 10 years and led extended wilderness hikes. Dona covered more than 2,600 miles and then authored The High Country Backpacker.
