For Love of Some Islands, by Floyd Schmoe
For half a century forester, biologist, teacher, Floyd Schmoe, has explored with huge enjoyment the widely varied points of interest of the Pacific Northwest.
In For Love of Some Islands (236 pages), he writes about the islands and waters of Puget Sound, with particular attention to a recent summer spent there on a houseboat, observing, recording and reflecting on the life that today goes on at the sea’s edge as it has since the beginning of time. Published by Northwest Corner Books, an imprint of Epicenter Press.
“I just think he’s terrific and I don’t care about fishing… I just really liked his writing style and how descriptive he was. I felt like I was there with him.”
–Jim Moore, Sports Columnist, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“Andrew is a marvelous yarn-spinner, a throwback to all of the great outdoors columnists I read in Outdoor Life growing up… Using marvelous storytelling skills, a flair for vivid description and a hint of humor, Andrew writes a column that leaves me wanting more when he’s done.”
–Devlyn Brooks, Editor, The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead
