Because of her light skin and bright blue eyes, the Inuit people of the Arctic regions dubbed Marie Peary 'Snow Baby'. Daughter of Admiral Robert E. Peary, Marie was born on September 12, 1893 in a rugged lodge on the edge of the world in northern Greenland. Over the years, she and her mother traveled with her famous father and experienced a life far-removed from her contemporary counterparts. Her life was rich with travels, sights, and education that a life solely spent in the United States could never given her.

Full of black and white photographs, Snow Baby: The Arctic Childhood of Admiral Robert E. Peary's Daring Daughter is a biography for the young enthusiastic history/geography buff and a short, concise memoir for an older reader.
