Guts, Feathers, and All (book)

A book of profiles about ten Swan’s Islanders and their history.

In 2008 a fire destroyed the historical collection on Swan’s Island. I was hired as the Island Historical Documentation Fellow by Island Institute to help the community to reclaim their history. In addition to writing this book I also produced a series of audio and multi-media documentaries about the island’s history. Working with a team of volunteers we created a new digital photo and oral history collection, which continues to grow today.
