Sanctuary: The Story of Naturalist Mary Majka by Deborah Carr $19.95 Paperback Goose Lane Editions
Nominated for the 2011 Atlantic Independent Booksellers' Choice Award!
Authentic. Original. Inimitable.
Mary Majka is one of Canada's great pioneering environmentalists. She is best known as a television host, a conservationist, and driving force behind the internationally acclaimed Marys Point Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve on the Bay of Fundy.
Sanctuary gives full expression to the intensely personal story of Mary's life. A daughter of privilege, a survivor of World War II Poland, an architect of dreams, Mary Majka became a passionate environmentalist intent on protecting fragile spaces and species for generations to come. In this amazing story of determination and foresight, Deborah Carr reveals a complex, indomitable, thoroughly human being — flawed yet feisty, inspiring and inspired.
