This is a powerfully rendered story of a twenty-year-old newlywed transplanted from New Hampshire to a remote island in the immense Gulf of Alaska. Here, she must learn to live communally with her new family in primitive conditions without running water, electricity, or contact with the outside world. Even more challenging, she enters the dangerous and exhausting world of commercial salmon fishing. With an unflinching gaze, the author writes incisively about her first fifteen seasons on the island, exploring paradoxes of wilderness living, her changing spirituality, her difficult transition from young women to wife and mother, and her unusual childhood that prepared her for this uncommon life.
