Introducing Eli "Mosquito" Westin
Eli Westin lives in the Alaskan wilderness. Outside the mainstream, for more than thirty years she has traveled and worked throughout most of Alaska's vast regions. During the 70's she worked on crews at fish canneries and then construction sites on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez. She lived in the Kotzebue Inuit native community in the Artic near the Bearing Sea. When she got her pilots license she flew her "bush" plane on skis to remote areas. A self described wanderer, she explored some of the most isolated stretches of river that exist like the Kuskokwim and Yukon Delta areas.
