Gaining Daylight Life on Two IslandsGathering at its core  Gaining Daylight explores what it means to balance lives on two islands living within both an ancient way of life and the modern world Her personal essays integrate natural and island history with her experiences of fishing and family life as well as the challenges of living at the northern edge of the. Thoroughly enjoyed this The essays are set in the uniue landscape of Kodiak AK where the author lives with her husband and two young sons in the town of Kodiak in the winter and at a fish site on the other side of the island in the summer Having lived there in Kodiak when I was young it was fun to recognize certain aspects of the landscape and lifestyle in the essays but I am now long and far removed from Alaskan life However I think many can identify with the author's observations of life becoming the mother of two young sons settling into family life after travelling to and living in various interesting places and her take on the history of where she now lives The writing drew me in with an honest straightforward personal and vivid style It's not easy living in Alaska My favorite essay was The Simple Life where the author reminds us gently and with humor of the realities of living off the land while still showing a deep appreciation of the beauty of her surroundings
