About this book

Fishcamp is Nancy Lord's eloquent paean to the place she calls home. In clear and richly textured prose, she captures the simple beauty of a life lived with nature, "a part" rather than "apart.

"Written in quiet, unadorned language, Lord's book [...] is like a large fish stew, with all manner of fascinating information about bears, fish, birds, insects, plants and trees tossed in along with slower-moving accounts of mending nets and putting boats up for the winter [...] The purpose of her contemplative book is to share her belief in the interconnectedness of all things: as she sums it up `everything has a life of its own, but nothing lives by itself."
