Ada Blackjack Johnson was born in Solomon, Alaska and raised by missionaries who taught her to read English. She married and gave birth to three children with her first husband, but only one survived past infancy. She and the first husband divorced after that. The divorce  left her destitute, and she temporarily placed her son in an orphanage. Soon after, in , she joined an expedition across the Chukchi Sea to Russia's Wrangel Island led by Canadian Allan Crawford but financed, planned and encouraged by Vilhjalmur Stefansson.
Stefansson considered those with advanced knowledge in the fields of geography and science for this expedition. The team included five people: Maurer had spent eight months in on the island after surviving the shipwreck of the Karluk. The conditions soon turned bad for the team. After rations ran out, the team was unable to kill enough game on the island to survive. So, on 28 January three men tried to cross the mile frozen Chukchi Sea to Siberia for help and food, leaving Ada and the ailing Lorne Knight behind.
Knight was afflicted with a dietary deficiency, scurvy , and was cared for by Ada until he died on June 23, The other three men were never seen again, and so Ada was left alone except for the company of the expedition's cat, Vic.
Ada learned to survive in the extreme freezing conditions until she was rescued on 19 August by a former colleague of Stefansson's, Harold Noice. Some newspapers called her a real "female Robinson Crusoe.
She remarried and had another son, Billy. Eventually, Ada returned to the Arctic where she lived until the age of She was quiet and hated the media circus that developed around her and the attempts by her rescuer Noice and Stefansson to exploit her story. Except for the salary that she made on the trip and a few hundred dollars for furs that she trapped while on Wrangel, Ada did not benefit from the subsequent publication of several very popular books and articles concerning this disastrous voyage.
