by Lois W. Roberts




San Miguel is part of Channel Islands National Park and lies within Santa Barbara County. This westernmost island receives northwesterly winds and severe weather from the open ocean. The cold and nutrient-rich water surrounding the island is home to a diverse array of sea life that is not found on the southern islands. Submerged rocks make the nearly 28-mile (45 km) coastline a mariner's nightmare.

Amazing history of this little island. My uncle Floyd crashed on this island during WWII. I learned the truth about the crash from this book from eye-witnesses. Different than the military records and story told to the family. I believe the eye-witnesses. Their remains are still on the island with the plane. More than likely sand was delivered from the USAAF to my grandmother.

If you re doing any research on this island and its history, this is a great find. Author traces history and supplied new interpolations of how it finally got the name.
