Hunter of Peace
Nominated for a Jesse Award
About the Book
Hunter of Peace is inspired by the real-life adventures of turn-of-the-century botanist and explorer Mary Schaffer Warren who, in 1907, led a dangerous expedition to the headwaters of the Athabasca River, then married a much younger man and settled in Banff. A celebration of the courage and spirit of a very remarkable woman.
“Sharon Stearn’s lovely, lyrical new play is a compelling romance of female freedom that finds its best expression in some of the play’s more enduring poetry.”
