In her brief life, Mary White's spunk and spirit left their mark on her hometown. After she died in a riding accident, her father poured his heart and his renowned storytelling skills into a loving essay that left its mark on American literature. William Allen White was a small-town newspaper editor with a national reputation as an author. Because of the compelling and often reprinted article he wrote about his daughter s life and untimely death, Mary White like Peter Pan has stayed forever young and alive. Using White s essay as a framework, author Beverley Buller tells about the life of Mary White in A Prairie Peter Pan: The Story of Mary White.. Buller is also author of a book about White's life, From Emporia: The Story of William Allen White, published in 2007.
