Yemm is Hugh "The Polar Bear" Rowland's employee and nemesis - they have a friendly but strident rivalry going on to see who can out-truck the other. This is Rick's second year on the ice roads. The first time he heard the road cracking beneath him he almost bailed, but he calls himself "too stupid and stubborn" to quit.
