J.P. (Jequita) McDaniel has teamed up with esteemed Eagle River, AK artist, Jon Van Zyle to create an important and unique picture book, published in late 2010 by Taylor Trade/Rowman & Littlefield. The lyrical text and stunning full-color paintings tell the story of the famous woman conservationist, Mardy Murie. We're excited that former President William J. Clinton has written a heartfelt endorsement of the book us. He presented Mardy Murie with the Presidential Medal of Honor during his administration for her outstanding contributions to environmental preservation. Among other achievements, Mardy and her husband, Olaus, were responsible for the establishment of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.
