MARDY MURIE DID! Taylor Trade/National Book Network
J.P. (Jequita) McDaniel has teamed up with popular Eagle River, AK artist, Jon Van Zyle to create an exciting new picture book to be published in late 2010 by Taylor Trade/Rowman & Littlefield. We can't wait! 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.
