  Born in England in 1905, Mary Percy Jackson graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1927 with degrees in medicine and surgery. Responding to an advertisement in a medical journal recruiting doctors to work in Alberta, she moved to Alberta in 1929, settling in the Peace River area. Assigned to a territory of nearly 400 square miles, Jackson travelled mostly on horseback through mainly unmarked trails ministering to her patients. Vigilant about nutrition and vaccination, she promoted good health for five generations of Metis, Native, and homesteader populations. In 1975 she was named "Woman of the Year" by the Voice of Native Women for her tireless devotion and years of dedicated service. Suitable for the Wilds offers readers a new opportunity to discover this true trail-blazer through her fascinating letters and correspondence that demonstrate clearly her profound impact on Alberta's social development in the early twentieth century.
