Carolyn Servid, the child of American parents, grew up in a village in tropical India. America seemed to her, she writes in Of Landscape and Longing, "a world apart," a foreign country in which she could never quite fit. Small wonder, then, that she chose to settle in a once-remote and distant pocket of America, in the little Alaskan town of Sitka, to work as a writer and teacher. Her slender book gathers essays inspired by her time in India, Alaska, and places in between, essays that return to questions of how one finds and makes a home, a place of rootedness and belonging, a place in which to battle homesickness for all the other places we've known. A keen, spiritually inclined observer of the natural world, and a committed defender of the untamed forests that surround her, she writes easily of salmon and eagles, of clouds and spruce trees. And while Servid sometimes lapses into sentimentality--you might not guess, reading her, that humpback whales sing for their own purposes, and not strictly to awaken noble and loving thoughts in the humans who happen to overhear them--her exaltation at living at the water's edge, close to wild animals and the wild ocean, rings true. --Gregory McNamee biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,nature and ecology,oceans and seas,pacific,science and math,specific groups,travel Travel, Milkweed Editions

ID: 29150230

Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.: Milkweed Editions, 2000. First Softcover Edition . Soft cover. New/No Jacket. Genz, Julie (cover illustration). Born in India to medical missionaries, Carolyn Servid grew up along the Arabian Sea yet knew that this homeland was not her own. Years later, back in America, a trip to Alaska reawakened "a sensibility I did not fully understand" - the sense of connection between the human heart and the land. This shoreline would become her home. Describing the landscape around Sitka, Alaska and her joy in rowing Thimbleberry Bay in her red Banks dory, Servid conveys the elusive, soul-sustaining qualities of knowing a place well. Her story asks larger questions about how people relate to the land around them: Whether as a place for recreation, as a site of occasional retreat, or, in Servid's case, as an ongoing intimate relationship of growing pleasure and knowledge - the land as lover found. 192 pages with acknowledgments and works cited. On the bottom of the pages is a small remainder mark. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Milkweed Editions, 2000
