Helene Glidden

Helene Glidden was born in 1900 at the New Dungeness Lighthouse on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. She originally wrote "The Light on the Island" as a memoir for her children. Her father was a noted lighthouse keeper in the Pacific Northwest until his death, while on duty, at the Semiahmoo Lighthouse in Blaine, Washington in 1919.

Mrs. Glidden also published a cookbook, "Pacific Coast Seafood Chef" in 1953 along with many articles and stories for several magazines. Her writings contain a wonderfully innocent sense of humor and a unique wit.

"Readers can once again enjoy Helene Glidden's classic, The Light on the Island, as this 50th Anniversary Edition retells the touching story of a young girl growing up on Patos Island in the San Juan Archipelago. Her parents raised thirteen children while her father served as the Patos Island lighthouse keeper from 1905 - 1913. Helene reminisces about the adventure and heartbreak experienced on a beautiful but remote island where smugglers, old timers and "God" weave in an out of their lives."
