Writing in the Footsteps of the Muries
One hundred years ago, in the summer of 1922, two half-brothers, Olaus and Adolph Murie, arrived in Mount McKinley National Park (today’s Denali NP) to study caribou. Over the following decades, they would revolutionize the sciences of ecology and wildlife biology, and marry half-sisters Mardy Thomas and Louise Gillete. Together the four would become pillars of the American wilderness preservation movement. Join Alaska author Kim Heacox to hike the tundra where the Muries did, and gain inspiration from their writing.
