This is by far one of the best books I have ever read! Mardie Murie is an inspiration to all who love nature and life. Her husband Olaus and his research along with involvement in the Nature Conservancy have helped to create many protected areas we enjoy today. Mardie writes of their adventures in Alaska with details vivid enough to make you feel you are there with her. A book to savor every word.
