This is a beautifully written tribute to an incredibly special and generous man.

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.

Executive Director, Vashon-Maury Land Trust
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.
