Miss Rumphius is the life story of Miss Alice Rumphius, otherwise known as the Lupine Lady, as told by her young niece and namesake, Alice. When she was young, Miss Rumphius set two goals for herself: she would follow in her grandfather's footsteps and travel to faraway places, and then she would settle down in a house by the sea. Her grandfather tells her there is one more thing she must do. She must do something to make the world more beautiful. As an adult, Alice does travel the world and live in a house by the sea, but she does not know how she can make the world more beautiful.

Then, an unexpected discovery gives her a wonderful idea!
