There are many Mary Bradys, but the theme that continues to surface is the romantic who roams mountains, glaciers, farmland, deserts, snowfields, parks, oceans, lakes, forestsand even towns and cities.

Mary lives in the Midwest with her hero husband, her could-not-ask-for-a-better-one son, and a cheeky little bird. She doesn't roam all the time, and when she's at home, the thing she loves the most is being part of a family.

Where's Mary? She's with The Women of the Sun, "smoking" a pretzel log, on a pontoon boatin Montana.
