Douglas, Marjorie M.
Adult Nonfiction F612.H5 D68 1998
Summary: Writer Marjorie Douglas recalls her idyllic, fun-filled summer days on Crane Island in Lake Minnetonka in the 1920s when she and her two brothers spent long hours swimming, diving off the dock and from the ten-foot-high tower, slipping our of the house after dark for excursions with their friends, and exploring the island from end to end. The Myers family -- practical, idealistic father, dainty, dignified mother, serious older brother Bob, rascally younger brother Everett, and Marjorie, the middle child and only girl -- moved to the island cottage every summer once school let out and stayed until classes began again. Her story of those peaceful seasons is a fond reminiscence of a loving and supportive family and a powerful reminder of the timeless beauty of Minnesota summers at the lake.
