Inhaltsangabe: This is an oral history of an unusual Minnesota summer vacation community, Star Island, located on an island in Cass Lake, in northern Minnesota, and only inhabited during the summer. Most summer communities are known for their famous residents or magnificent architecture. Star Island has neither, but instead is a homogeneous, middle-class log-cabin development whose residents are attracted by the wilderness, the recreational facilities and the healthy environment. This book is about the importance of place in developing family character. The book is based on oral history interviews of residents conducted by the author. The interviews relate the best-known events of the community, as well as the common sensibilities of Star Islanders. The book contains 35 photographs of Island life and inhabitants, information gleaned from local and regional newspapers. The author draws a number of interesting conclusions about this curious summer community. Those interested in local history, the resort industry, federal regulation of national parks and forests and, in general, northern Minnesota, as well as those curious about exclusive, "hidden" communities, will enjoy this book.
Über den Autor: Carol Ryan, Ph.D., the author-editor, is a recently retired professor and college dean who is widely known for her professional and volunteer activities. A historian from St. Paul, she began spending summers on Star Island with her family in the 1970s.
