520    For many the idea of living off the land is a romantic 
       notion left to stories of olden days or wistful dreams at 
       the office. But for Sara Loewen it becomes her way of life
       each summer as her family settles into their remote cabin 
       on Uyak Bay for the height of salmon season. With this 
       connection to thousands of years of fishing and gathering 
       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 Pacific. 
       Loewen's writing is richly descriptive; readers can almost
       feel heat from wood stoves, smell smoking salmon, and spot
       the ways the ocean blues change with the season. With 
       honesty and humor, Loewen easily draws readers into her 
       world, sharing the rewards of subsistence living and the 
       peace brought by miles of crisp solitude.
