There were some parts that I very much enjoyed. I very much enjoyed learning more about the research and their personal experiences on the island. I also enjoyed some of the lovely quotes included in the book. Other parts, however, left me puzzled, wondering the why the author included that story.

Her writing is straight forward, concise and often humerous view of life on th ...more

I met Carolyn while I was on Isle Royale for my honeymoon, and she gave me this book. I picked it up and did not set it down until I was finished. Such a wonderful book that many outdoor enthusiasts and many more will enjoy.

Makes me want to go visit the island even more, to see what can be found. Get away and be with nature.
