Few people have been as dedicated to wilderness preservation as Mardy Murie. The first woman to graduate from the University of Alaska, she married Olaus Murie, a noted biologist, and moved to Jackson Hole in 1927. There she became involved in the enlargement of Grand Teton National Park in 1950, The Wilderness Act of 1964, and the creation of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. For all of her accomplishments, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Bill Clinton in 1998. This delightful book will introduce children to Mardy's fascinating life, and it encourages them to "be nice to the land and the trees and the air . . . we can do this you and me—because Mardy Murie Did!"
