Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using memoir as a means of meditation, Servid, director of the Island Institute, writes about our connections to the land, the search for home and a sense of belonging, and how we can love the home we've found. This book will be of particular interest to those who love to live near water.

Synopsis:

Though Americans move frequently and often live far from the place they were born, they retain a memory of the landscape of childhood. For Carolyn Servid, and for others who love shorelines and boats, this imprinted place is where water meets trees. Using memoir as a means of meditation, Servid writes about connections to the land and the ways our love of a place can lead us to see it as an adversary, as she once felt during an ascent in Glacier Bay; as something to be consumed, as in the sprouting of mansions in the valleys of Colorado; or as a lover, as in her intimate, abiding knowledge of the shore near her home, where her greatest pleasure is to row her Banks dory among the whales and nearby islands.
