The Island Within

When I saw this island at the entrance of Long Bay in Tenakee Inlet during our hunting trip, I thought almost immediately about Richard Nelson’s book ‘The Island Within’. One of the gifts of the book is how it offers a fresh look at how a human being can relate to his world. Nelson argues convincingly that people have the greatest sense of the land, the greatest sense of spiritual connection, when they subsist from the land on which they live. Spending again some time on the land and hunting for deer as a means of acquiring food for my family, I couldn’t agree more with him.
