Arrived on time. Very nice!

This is a great video to watch. It has many historical facts about the Murie's and is a romance as well. It is very romanticized about how cold and tough these people had to have been. I love the Murie home outside of Jackson, Wyoming, and loved, loved this video.

I love this book. It is such a good story about a wonderful life that only most dream of having. Very good read.

I have not been so impressed with an individual in a very long time. I found the book inspiring and the topic as prevalent today as 50 years ago.

This book was a well designed and written portrait of Mardy Murie. She was a woman of adventure and tenacity. She is an inspiration.

This supplied the pictures that were sorely missed by my wife and I while reading the Murie book about their life in Alaska.
