However, Paradise Bay Press has been working on a new Beaver Island book for some time now, and at last, in July of 2011, a new book is out: Life in the Beaver Island Archipelago. The new Beaver Island book is 208-pages of color, a 12 x 9 hardcover book. We hope people will enjoy the new book as well as we have enjoyed putting it together. It's available on the Island now at McDonough's Market, The Beaver Island Historical Society, The Beaver Island Community Center, Livingstone Studio, Whimsy, and the Toy Museum. Or if you're not on the Island, you can order the new Beaver Island Book online and we will ship a copy to you tomorrow
"When you buy this book, you start with the pictures—the lovely places you know so well from different angles and in colors you never saw before. Then you begin to get a sense of the whole: the progression of the seasons, the occasional portrait of an artist (as a Beaver Person). Eventually, you stop to read the text, and you find there a story of the Island that's easy to read, a mixture of the immediate—the here-and-now—interspersed with history that's amusing and intriguing and contains a multitude of facts you didn't know. Once you start reading Life in the Beaver Archipelago, like a thriller, it's hard to put down. It's not just a bunch of terrific pictures, it's a great summer read."
