Sanctuary: The Story of Naturalist Mary Majka by Deborah Carr
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
This book illuminates the adventures of one of Canada's most unique women. Rich in detail, family photos and personal quotations, it provides an honest description of an exceptional person, her family and her journey from pre-war Poland, through post-war Austria to rural New Brunswick.
As a person who has known Mary and her family since the early 70s, I think the author has done a great job in telling her story. It is a story that has interest on many levels e.g. life in Central Europe, the experience of immigrants to Canada, the early days of conservation activism in the Maritimes.

This book will be an inspiration to teachers and lovers of nature and heritage.
