This is the story of a woman who, after many years of intense political activism, begins living on a small island off the coast of Maine. She has no electricity and virtually no contact with people. She goes away to write. But instead she learns many important things: how to find her own food, how to be quiet, how to be alone. She finds that solitude is a great treasure and she finds her place there and herself. She emerges from the island and re-enters society a changed, stronger, and more focused person. It's a truly inspiring book.
