This review is from: Two in the Far North (Paperback)
We bought this book after watching 'Arctic Dance - the Mardy Murie' Video. The book was written by Mardy herself and is a fabulous account of life in times now gone in the Alaskan North as well as a fascinating read about her attitude to things and life in general. Such a wonderfully inspiring lady. Well worth the purchase - and I will read it again and again, I know. My husband is reading it now too

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful true story, 12 April 2014

This review is from: Two in the Far North (Paperback)
I loved this book. It is written with great humour and vivacity. The writer grew up in Alaska and when not yet twenty married a young biologist and spent the rest of her life travelling by sled and canoe all over Alaska, collecting data for the first large-scale study of the flora and fauna of the region, beginning with an in-depth study of the life habits of the caribou.
It is a marvelous insight into what it was like to live in the early part of the 20th century (they married around 1920). the later part of the book is about the situation now, especially the struggle to maintain wilderness areas and keep them safe from the destruction of big business. Highly recommended.
