“Having spent fourteen years on Guemes Island, I’ve come to believe that every island ought to have a mountain. Lummi Island has one. And just as islands need mountains, each distinct place deserves to have a writer who pays attention, who identifies the details which make that place different from all others. Luther Allen has become that kind of writer for Lummi Island, and his book has become, in words, the island’s other mountain. The View From Lummi Island is a day-book spanning an entire year and, as this poet has written, ‘the island and the mind encircle one another, whisper back and forth.’ That ‘mindful silk’ is the fabric of this book.” James Bertolino, author of Finding Water, Holding Stone
