When winter rain washes away Mary’s chances for a sledding day, she thinks there is no hope for excitement. But with a little imagination and a brimming pantry she soon finds herself caught up in a colorful journey.  Together with her father she relives five Alaska adventures, each uniquely inspired by a jar in her pantry. From salmon to blueberries, each lively tale introduces young readers to Mary’s homeland and invites them to learn about how different places can produce different foods.

Featuring brilliant collages from artists Nobu Koch and Clarissa Rizal, Mary’s Wild Winter Feast is a celebration of food, family, and finding fun in unexpected places.

Review Quotes
"A heartfelt evocation of the importance of place and family."
Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
“Painted illustrations by Nobu Koch serve as the focal point of collages created by Tlingit artist Clarissa Rizal. The blend of southeastern landscape photography and formline art complement the paintings beautifully and create a very unique look that’s worth the price of the book alone. The subject matter is also refreshingly unique.”
2018 Selection | Alaska Battle of the Books
“What's a girl to do? The snow is gone, so sledding is out. Rain and dark clouds will not keep Mary down. She slips into the pantry. She and her father reminisce about the food they harvested. Readers will enjoy five adventurous stories depicting Southeast Alaskan culture and subsistence lifestyles.”
