At Home on Fidalgo
The award-winning At Home on Fidalgo was written "by and for the residents of Fidalgo Island" in 1999. Edited by Evelyn Adams and designed by Constance Mears, the book contains stories, articles, interviews, poetry, photos and artwork by island residents chronicling the natural and human history and present-day wonder of living on Fidalgo Island. The Anacortes Community Forest Lands feature prominently in both the natural and human history of Fidalgo Island as presented in the book.
At Home on Fidalgo was produced and printed entirely with donated labor and funds. All proceeds go to the Conservation Easement Program. To date proceeds from the book exceed $30,000 and have permanently protected six five-acre groves in the ACFL. They groves are in honor of Evelyn Adams, Ruthie Johns, and Tracy Powell and in memory of Norman Sturdevant, Bill Rockwell and Gerry Wallrath.
At Home On Fidalgo is now out of print.
