In 1947, Manhattan socialite Barbara Mundy left a life of privilege and travelled deep into the interior of Labrador, as a volunteer with the Grenfell Mission. She quickly became enamoured with the area's natural beauty and found it more intriguing than her life among New York's social elite. She discovered a love for hunting, canoeing, and camping—and for fur trapper Russell Groves.

However, accustomed to a life of solitude, Russell had little patience for his new bride's lack of experience on a trap line. During their first two tumultuous years together, Barbara wrote letters chronicling the difficulties faced by a couple drawn together from vastly different backgrounds.

Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as Barbara Mundy's diaries and notes, to tell her remarkable story.Dear Everybody brings readers back to a remote place and time, through the eyes of a born adventurer.
