Kino heard the creak of the rope when Juana took Coyotito out of his hanging box and cleaned him and hammocked him in her shawl in a loop that placed him close to her breast. Kino could see these things without looking at them. Juana sang softly an ancient song that had only three notes and yet endless variety of interval. And this was part of the family song too. It was all part. Sometimes it rose to an aching chord that caught the throat, saying this is safety, this is warmth, this is the Whole.

Our Island Story, Part 1. by. Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall. Our Island Story was first published in 1905 and became an instant classic. up to the vicious and bloodthirsty confusion that is the War of the Roses (about 1500 years). Beginning with the Romans and following the triumphs and foibles of the good, not so good and the downright despicable figures of history; we are treated to a dazzling montage of kings, queens, barons, knights, explorers, movers and shakers that have played a key role in the history of England.

The long-lost novella by beloved author Mary Stewart, accompanied by the recently rediscovered short story 'The Lost One' - perfect for fans of Daphne du Maurier, Santa Montefiore and Anya Seton.

"Those Pearly Isles" contains a short chapter on each of the main Elizabeth Islands: their prominent features, flora and fauna, historical highlights and interesting lore. It is not a long book, being only 120 pages with appendices, 80 pages without. My copy appears to be a first edition published by the Gosnold Society of Cape Cod in 1976.

After reading the book it was apparent that Mr. Wilson enjoys adventure, has a love of the land and the things that grow on and wander over it, and a desire to research its history. Writing about his adventures allows him to share his passion with others. This is confirmed by some of the other books he has written: "Thoreau Lives," "Gosnold's Hope: The Story of Captain Bartholomew Gosnold" and "Lithuania: The Indestructible Soul."

Mr. Wilson's writing style is not that of a professional author; details of his own personal reactions to situations, the contents of his backpack and what he ate for lunch gives this book more the feel of a travelogue or diary than that of a piece of commercial nonfiction. I found this aspect unusual but not distracting.

Those who would like to know the Elizabeth Islands better, or who wish they had an uncle who could share tales of these Islands, will find this short treatise likable. However one might still wish that topics Mr. Wilson touches upon had been treated more rigorously and in more depth. Certainly these islands deserve a larger treatment than a few short chapters. Still, given the dearth of available information, this book can be a useful place to start.

I read this book many years ago as I had Mr. Wilson who taught at New Bedford High School when I was a student in the mid 70s. His unique teaching style and his regard for ecology certainly made an impression on me and others. Several of us took part in a 4 day survival trip to Martha's Vineyard surviving on what we could forage for on the island. This book is informative and entertaining. I wish I could message him to let him know that I still think of him often.
