The Enchanting Island That Inspired L.M. Montgomery
Catherine Reid

The Landscapes of Anne of Green—Catherine Reid Nineteen of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s twenty published novels are set on Prince Edward Island, but none of them brought PEI more to the world’s attention than Anne of Green Gables. The series has sold over fifty million copies and inspired numerous films, plays, musicals and television series. Anne has turned PEI into a multimillion-dollar tourist destination visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year.

In The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables: The Enchanting Island that Inspired L.M. Montgomery (Timber Press), author Catherine Reid reveals how Montgomery’s deep connection to the landscape of the Island inspired her to write Anne Green Gables. Readers will be immersed in the real places immortalized in the novel—the Lake of Shining Waters, the Haunted Wood and Lover’s Lane. Using Montgomery’s journals, scrapbooks and archives—including a glimpse at Montgomery’s hand-coloured photography—Reid explores the many similarities between Montgomery and her unforgettable heroine, Anne Shirley.

Catherine Reid has taught, most recently, at Warren Wilson College, in Asheville, North Caroline, where she served as director of the creative writing program and specialized in creative nonfiction and environmental writing. In addition to two works on nonfiction, Falling into Place and Coyote, she has published essays in such journals as the Georgia Review, Fourth Genre, Bellevue Literary Review, and Massachusetts Review. She has been a creative writing fellow at the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester Massachusetts, and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and has received fellowships from the north Carolina Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. She lives and gardens in the mountains of western North Carolina.
