Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Betsy Lester Roberti adds to the fascinating story her mother, Elizibeth Lester tells in her autobiography, The Legendary King of San Miguel, with childhood memories and observations from later visits to the island. She also includes diagrams and maps which help to orient one on the island as you read about the amazing life her family lived on this remote island off the coast of California.

I don't know what more to say. There's a certain bittersweet aspect to this memoir, as we all know how her stay on the island ended. She writes in a style that is both straightforward and vivid, personal yet universal enough to put evocative pictures in your mind.

This book is very interesting, especially when read in conjunction with "San Mlguel" by T. C. Boyle. I enjoyed comparing the memoir and the novel, with both describing many of the same events.
