A year ago VAF member Boyd C. Pratt published another of his studies in the vernacular architecture and landscape of the San Juan Islands: Island Farming: History and Landscape of Agriculture in the San Juan Islands.
A free-ranging pig that caused an international war; a year’s crop of ginseng that paid off the mortgage; and a breachy cow that led to bloody murder. Farming in the San Juan Islands has always presented challenges and opportunities. From Coast Salish camas cultivation through homesteading to commercial farming, explore the islands’ rich agricultural history in the landscape and farms of today. Tour guides included.
You can purchase the book on Amazon or send a check for $22.50 to Mulno Cove Publishing, 2551 Cattle Point Road, Friday Harbor, WA 98250 and Boyd will inscribe and sign it, too!
