Margaret Murray was a colourful, independent, life-loving woman who made journalism her calling. She pulled no punches, giving her readers the news exactly as she saw it and winning a reputation as an outspoken, honest, entertaining writer.
Margaret and her husband George met in boomtown Vancouver during the First World War. While raising a family, they operated a succession of papers in British Columbia: as a result, their lives are closely intertwined with six decades of history on Canada's northern and western frontiers. Through it all the wonderful spirit of Margaret Murray shines through--a pioneering newspaperwoman who continued to cause trouble for politicians and powers-that-be well into her eighties.
Ma Murray and the Newspapering Murrays is the fascinating story of an unforgettable Canadian media woman, and of the stories she broke.
