The swings of emotion, the ups and downs of spirit, and the sometimes intemperate personal remarks recorded, give this diary the reality of Isle Royale as it was then--wonderous, awe inspriting, beautiful and majestic but countered by the isolation, the sometimes claustrophobic atmosphere, the weariness the immensity of the task, the very real hardships.From the Author:
The words that follow record the true feelings and unabridged thoughts of a dedicated teacher, a wonderful mother, and a great friend.
Bob Simonson, Editor
