Keith Billington Shares an Extraordinary True Story


Posted: Friday, November 7, 2008

In September 1964 Keith Billington and his wife Muriel arrived in the Northwest Territories outpost of Fort McPherson, 1,700 miles north of Edmonton. Keith, a nurse, and Muriel, a midwife, were barely into their twenties and fresh from England when they arrived, eager to put their brand new skills to work. They loved the North and stayed for six years. House Calls by Dogsled: Six Years in an Arctic Medical Outpost is Keith and Muriel’s amazing true story.
