"In 1944, Manhattan socialite Barbara Mundy travelled to tiny North West River, Labrador, to volunteer with the Grenfell Mission. She didn't expect to feel so at home in the wilds of Labrador, more than she ever had in New York's high society. She discovered a love for hunting, canoeing, and camping—and for fur trapper Russell Groves. During her first two years in North West River, Barbara wrote detailed carbon-copied letters to 'Everybody.' Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as a diary Barbara kept during the two winters she spent on the trapline with her husband, to tell her remarkable story. 'Dear Everybody' takes readers to a remote place and time, through the eyes of a born adventurer." - from the rear cover. Chapters : 1. The Unbeaten Path; 2. Sugar Barons and Railroad Kings; 3.
