On Fisher Pond: Memories of Bill Fisher and His Gift to Vashon Island is a tribute to generosity and stewardship, not only for those on Vashon Island, but for anyone who loves the land—wherever they may live.

"Laurie Stewart has woven a warm, delightful, surprising portrait of Bill Fisher from shared memories of friends and neighbors, revealing a private person with a great capacity for observing, loving, and stewarding his pond and its surrounds. Bill gave the community his beautiful pond. Laurie’s gentle descriptions and exquisitely remembered moments offer us a new gift: glimpses of the unusual man himself and his particular stewardship ethic."
Rayna Holtz, King County Librarian, ret.

"This is a beautifully written tribute to an incredibly special and generous man."
Emma Amiad, Founding president, Vashon Maury Island Audubon Society

"Fisher Pond remains one of the most generous and precious of gifts to our community. The Vashon Land Trust is honored to steward it. Laurie Stewart's book is a wonderful reminder of Bill’s philosophy—that Nature knows what she’s doing."
Tom Dean, Executive Director, Vashon-Maury Land Trust
