Omtale: Fishcamp Life on an Alaskan Shore
Nancy Lord celebrates a great good place-Cook Inlet, Alaska, where she and her partner have made a life together for more than twenty years.. With poetic cadence and magical tone, Lord writes of her life from June to August, days filled with the mending of nets, the muscle-wrenching labor of the catch, the exquisite pleasure of an improvised hot-tub, and the often subtle beauty of the inlet's flora and fauna.Woven throughout Lord's adventures is the deeper history of the region's stories and legends of the native Denaina people; anecdotes about past and current residents; and descriptions of their neighbors, both human and animal.
