San Miguel Island: My Childhood Memoir

This incredible historical memoir San Miguel Island: My Childhood Memoir 1930-1942 tells the story of Betsy Lester Roberti's childhood on desolate San Miguel Island, the westernmost of the Santa Barbara Channel Islands. Betsy loved the island— its sea mammals, challenging weather, and all the treasures that were discovered in the sands or washed ashore. She writes vividly about the sights, smells and routines of her daily existence, all enhanced by priceless vintage images of the family incorporated throughout the book.
