Arctic Dance on DVD and VHS, the story of Mardy Murie
Almost a decade in the making, Arctic Dance: The Mardy Murie Story is a collaborative effort by a group of passionate filmmakers, writers, musicians, and biologists to produce the definitive film biography of this exceptional woman. Directed by Bonnie Kreps and written by Charlie Craighead, the documentary is both an intimate portrait of a well-loved national figure and a poignant historical document.
Hundreds of photographs from Mardy's years in Alaska were collected and catalogued, along with film footage from her years spent lobbying for wilderness conservation. Stories taken from her diaries and journals, vividly recount the adventures that were her life.
The film combines this archival material with more recent footage of Mardy in conversation with her friend, Terry Tempest Williams. Harrison Ford narrates, and Lyn Dalebout reads from Mardy's books and journals as the voice of the young Mardy Murie. There are appearances by George Schaller, John Denver, Celia Hunter, and many, many others.

Two in the Far North
Mardy Murie tells her own story in Two in the Far North. Mardy kept detailed journals whenever they traveled, and this book is based on those journals. Part one is about Mardy's childhood in Fairbanks, Alaska. In part two Mardy meets Olaus, they marry and take a trip by boat and dog sled into the Brooks Range to study the wildlife. Martin Murie is born and he accompanies Mardy and Olaus in part three on their expedition up the Old Crow river to study the abundant waterfowl. After Olaus resigned from the U.S. Biological Survey he and Mardy concentrated their efforts on saving the Alaska wilderness. Part four of the book is about their return to the Brooks Range for a more detailed study, sponsored by the Wilderness Society and other conservation oriented organizations.
