She is also a freelance writer for The New Yorker, Harper's, Atlantic Monthly and Geist magazine.
Iglauer was born in Cleveland, Ohio and educated at Wellesley College and at Columbia University School of Journalism. Her interest in Eskimo culture led her to travel the northern climates extensivley. Iglauer appeared as herself, along with John Denison, in the History Channel presentation, Ice Road Truckers.
Iglauer's second husband was Canadian fisherman John Daly, and in 1988 her "Fishing With John" was published. Widowed by Daly's sudden death on the dance floor, Iglauer later married widower Frank White, another self-reliant Canadian in the same coastal community where she had settled permanently.
