Mary of Mile 18 caused a sensation when it was first published in 1971. The story of Mary who finds a wolf pup but is forbidden to keep it as a pet, until it proves its worth on the family farm, touched the hearts of readers in Canada and around the world. Newspapers vied to interview the first-time author, a young woman teaching in a tiny school house in a remote northern settlement. The art was exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery and in 1972, the Canadian Library Association enthusiastically voted it Book of the Year for Children.

Now 30 years later, new generations are enjoying the story of Mary, her hardworking family and their little home near the woods in Mile 18. Tundra is thrilled to bring forth a new commemorative edition to celebrate an enduring classic.
