Book Description:
As author Ann Ronald notes, 'Simultaneously a paean to his father and a personal memoir about a changing landscape caught by a rising tide of affluence, Alan Weltzein s A Father and an Island:Reflections on Loss, echoes my own Pacific Northwest youth the endless saltwater summers, the quirky behavior of a bookworm, the sweet sharp tang of blackberry cobbler, the fierce games of badminton, the beachcombing days of discovery, the blessedness of parents well loved. Anyone who s grown up in and around Puget Sound will find familiar memories triggered on every delicious page. Some sweet,some nostalgic, some downright sad, they re all here in this poignant remembrance of things past.' Northwest author Mary Clearman Blew writes, 'In this moving tribute to his father and his family s home on a Puget Sound island,Alan Weltzein returns us to a time when summers were glorious and children played all day long on beaches that were still unexploited and unrestricted a pleasure to read.' Weltzien's memoir is an essential book for Northwest Letters.
