“A segment of that magnificent mural on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel portrays two iconic figures—God and Adam—arms outstretched, forefingers pointing, almost touching. Those two fingers rivet the attention, the tiny space between them like the synaptic cleft breathlessly awaiting the explosive, heavenly connection.
That finger of land, which gently rose from the lake bed and upon which my great-grandfather built the camp, was like one of those fingers—wondrous and magical.”
A moving, multigenerational memoir of fathers and sons, love and betrayal, adventure, and growing up, set in the world of a family summer camp through which six generations of Sanborn stories, as told and retold by various family members, became part and parcel of the Camp legends, which frequently attained mythic proportions.
Sanborns’ Camp was a finalist in the Readers Favorite International Literary Competition of that year.
