About this book

In her first book, Island in the Sound, Hazel Heckman brought Anderson Island, in Puget Sound, to the world with stories about its people, its history, and its sadly vanishing way of life. Now, in Island Year, she brings the same clarity of vision, warmth, and insight to the natural life of her island, recording the cycle of the seasons as an appreciative and articulate observer. Heckman knew that the destruction of Anderson Island would never arouse great public indignation, but while it existed as one of the "little wild places" she was able to share it and her love for it.

First published in 1972.
