ilean Douglas is a Canadian cultural icon: nature writer, journalist, farmer, feminist, politician, adventurer, poet. Born in 1900 into a wealthy family and orphaned at 16, she rejected the expectations of the class and society into which she was born and made her own way in the world as an independent woman. Gilean Douglas's writings span more than 80 years, from her childhood in the early 1900s through four marriages, 10 years in the wilds of the Cascade Mountains, and 40 years on Cortes Island, BC, where she died in 1993. At the end of her long life, she said that all she had ever wanted to do was write, and that nature provided the subject and haven that allowed her to achieve her dream. Both a collection of some of the best writings of Gilean Douglas and a fascinating biography, Gilean Douglas: Writing Nature, Finding Home will reacquaint friends and followers of Douglas to her life and work, and will introduce new readers to a fascinating and compelling voice.
