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 that she ever had in New York 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 Everyone . Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as a diary to tell her remarkable story. Dear Everybody takes readers to a remote place and time, through the eyes of a born adventurer.
