Categories: Nonfiction

An American writer of poetry and stories, Celia Laighton Thaxter, was one of the most popular authors of the late nineteenth century. She is best known today for her non-fiction books “An Island Garde


n” and “Among the Isles of Shoals”. Celia grew up in the nine small Isles of Shoals, ten miles off the coast of New Hampshire. In her essays, devoted native land, she gives vivid descriptions of the isles, allowing readers, who have never even been there, to imagine the views, landscapes, flora and fauna of the area. Besides, the stories are fascinating, haunting and humorous tales of the natives. The style of writing, so heartening and lyric, inspires probably anyone to see the Isles with one’s own eyes.
