RICHARDSON, Evelyn M. Living Island. Toronto : The Ryerson Press, (1965). First Printing. Pp (8), 1-216. 8vo, orange cloth, silver lettering to spine.

Laugher pp.475-6.

Evelyn M. Richardson, née Evelyn May Fox (b. 1902, Emerald Isle, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia - d. 1976 Barrington, Nova Scotia) Canadian writier. She was raised on Cape Sable Island, and spent 35 years lighthouse keeping on Bon Portage Island near Shag Harbour.

An account of the natural history of Bon Portage Island, with an emphasis on the bird life.

"Her husband kept the light on the small Nova Scotian island of Bon Portage, eight miles from Cape Sable, and for twenty-six years there Evelyn Richardson's family were the only human inhabitants. The author's life, like that of the island's birds, animals and wild flowers, was governed by sea and season.

With humour and sentiment, Evelyn Richardson takes the reader back and forth across her island, picking bakeapples, stalking shore birds, or thrilling to the discovery of strays or other rare types of bird life. With great charm and a tremendous feeling for the sea and its storm-ridden coast, the author writes of clouds of seagulls and many smaller migrants and wintering birds. She constantly varies her account of ten years of birdwatching with heartwarming descriptions of changing seasons, March storms, offshore fogs and delightful summer days. This award-winning author tells, too, of the animal life, both wild and domesticated, and a variety of shrubs and flowers. When she rushes to her kitchen, binoculars in hand, each new experience becomes a treasure to be shared." - front dj flap.

The chapters [un-numbered in the book] are :
1. The Waiting Island;
2. Early Acquaintances;
3. Sweet to Remember;

Foreword by her daughters Ann Wickens and Elizabeth June Smith.

"Although Evelyn Richardson is best known for her award-winning account of island life, We Keep a Light, she was also a prolific writer whose articles, essays, and radio scripts chronicle the golden years of Nova Scotia's rich and colourful past. Here, for the first time, is a collection of her best short writings, many of which were previously published in such popular magazines as The Atlantic Advocate, The Advertiser, and Bluenose Magazine, and which convey her love for home and her strong awareness of roots.

A masterly storyteller, Richardson's themes of ancestry, adventure, and the sea are a delightful blend of social history and narrative that illustrate her gift of keen observation and her pleasure in sharing the intrigue hidden in past worlds." - rear.
