Islands have been at the heart of our desires, and our fears, forever. *Island* tells the groundbreaking story of humans and islands, and islands and nature, from the beginning of time to the present. Drawing on history, literature, art, anthropology, biology, and earth science, *Island* explores the human settlement of islandsincluding the seafaring skills required to cross the seasand describes in vivid detail the spectacular flora and fauna of islands as well as their earth-shattering geology. It shows that ever since humans have been traveling and telling tales, they have been fascinated by islands. Creation stories around the world speak of land rising out of the water, and there are many literary island encountersfrom Noah to Prospero and Gulliver, and from Ulysses to Robinson Crusoe and the Count of Monte Cristo. In real life, too, sailors and settlers, explorers and scientists, pirates and artists, have all been drawn to islands. The story of islands is also the story of our planet, from its beginning as an island in space to the contemporary appearance and disappearance of islands in the cycles of climate change and seismic upheavals.

These slow, beautiful stories - resolute and resonant - are small masterpieces: apparently simple but actually crafted with enormous skill and precision. Set against the unforgiving landscape of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, they are all concerned with the complexities and mysteries of the human heart, the unbreakable bonds and unbridgeable chasms between man and woman, parent and child. Steeped in memory and myth and washed in the brine and blood of the long battle with the land and the sea, these stories celebrate a passionate engagement with the natural world and a continuity of the generations in the face of transition, in the face of love and loss. As John McGahern says in his eloquent foreword: 'the work has a largeness, of feeling, of intellect, of vision, a great openness and generosity, even an old-fashioned courtliness. The stories stand securely outside of fashion while reflecting deep change'. Bringing together all Alistair MacLeod's short fiction, and including two previously uncollected stories, Island represents the great achievement of one of the world's finest storytellers.

A teenage girl follows a mysterious boy to an island with a dark secret Since she was born, Rachel's whole life has been planned out for her, from prep school to the Ivy League to a job as a doctor or lawyer. Only her grandfather understands that, at thirteen, she would rather just be a kid. Rachel is suffering through a boring yacht party when she catches the eye of a busboy who, like her, doesn't seem to belong. He convinces her to do something impulsive: She jumps off the boat to take a dip in the ocean. It's the biggest mistake she'll ever make. Rachel nearly drowns, and wakes up on the beach of a mysterious island called Onieron. It's almost like a theatrical summer camp, with boys and girls in costumes, having fun. Though it's nice at first, soon Rachel just wants to go home. But leaving the island is something the Onieronians will never allow. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Lerangis including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
