For over thirty-seven years, Margaret and Olaus Murie made their home in the mountainous wilderness of the Tetons, where Olaus Murie conducted his famous studies of the American elk, the wapiti. Through these years their home was almost a nature-conservation shrine to thousands of Americans interested in the out-of-doors, in animals, in nature in general. Wapiti Wilderness, begun by Mrs. Murie as a sequal to her Two in the Far North, which told of the Muries' life and expeditions in Alaska, became a book writeen by both the Muries.
Pure gold, every word of it, every sketch...Both Muries are no less precise than competent as naturalists. - Natural History
