About the Author

Margaret E. Murie was born in Seattle, Washington, but grew up attending public schools in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was the first woman graduate of the University of Alaska. Two months after her graduation, she married the biologist Olaus J. Murie. Their epic honeymoon journey by dogsled into the Brooks Range of Alaska's far north set the stage for their marriage and their careers with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and as director of the Wilderness Society. After Olaus passed away in 1963, Mardy continued writing and working tirelessly as a pioneer of the environmental movement. She received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the University of Alaska, and President William J. Clinton awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her inspiring efforts to safeguard America's wilderness for future generations. Mardy passed away in her home in Moose, Wyoming at the age of 101.

Reviews

"Simply put, Mardy Murie is a national treasure. Her life has made a certain kind of life possible for the rest of us. Generations to come will feel her imprint, though they may not know it was how she lived her life that allowed them to witness some of the last wild places on Earth. They may not know that it is because of her life that their souls and spirits can be fed by what is natural and wild. I hope those who come long after us will have TWO IN THE FAR NORTH in their satchels as they gaze upon these natural wonders and that they, too, will come away with same resolve she ad to protect these incredible gifts." ---Robert Redford
