Island Sojourn: A Memoir (Graywolf Memoir Series). Arthur's descriptions and mediations on what they are doing/thinking as they build a home and a life on an island in Northern BC are so simple and honest; but simplicity does not equal superficial. 1555971490 (ISBN13: 9781555971496). The pace of the telling is gentle; the stories could be mistaken for small, but are not - she has a gift for perfectly encapsulating the people of the community with a minimalist's touch. In Antarctic Navigation, Elizabeth Arthur introduces us to a young woman obsessed with reproducing that journey as completely as possible. It is a journey to a harsh and seemingly alien landscape, "the highest, driest, coldest place on earth," yet home to unique wildlife and a wild beauty. Morgan Lamont tells her story from its very beginning, with her birth and the childhood that led to her consuming passion with Antarctica and Scott.

A memoir provides a record not so much of the memoirist as of the memoirist's world. This poor man! His face went through the most remarkable series of changes

For my wife, Trudy, and my children, Hays and Tess. A memoir provides a record not so much of the memoirist as of the memoirist's world. It must differ from biography in that a memoirist can never achieve the perspective that a biographer possesses as a matter of course. Autobiography, if there really is such a thing, is like asking a rabbit to tell us what he looks like hopping through the grasses of the field. This poor man! His face went through the most remarkable series of changes. He tried his best to smile, though it didn't come out well because he couldn't get the look of shock off his face.
