Book Description
In 1944, Manhattan socialite Barbara Mundy left a life of privilege and travelled deep into the interior of Labrador, as a volunteer with the Grenfell Mission. She quickly became enamoured with the area’s natural beauty and found it more intriguing than her life among New York’s social elite. She discovered a love for hunting, canoeing, and camping—and for fur trapper Russell Groves.

However, accustomed to a life of solitude, Russell had little patience for his new bride’s lack of experience on a trap line. During their first two tumultuous years together, Barbara wrote letters chronicling the difficulties faced by a couple drawn together from vastly different backgrounds.

Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as Barbara Mundy’s diaries and notes, to tell her remarkable story. Dear Everybody brings readers back to a remote place and time, through the eyes of a born adventurer.
