About the Author:

The late David Conover was a dreamer. He passed away in 1983 but not before authoring four books. Once Upon an Island was first published in 1967 and gained international acclaim. David is also credited with "discovering" Norma Jean (aka Marilyn Monroe) while she was working in an airplane assembly plant in Long Beach, California where he was stationed as a photographer for the Army during World War II.

Review:

"Anyone who has toured the Gulf Islands...probably wanted to own one. This is exactly what happened to David Conover." -- Seattle Times

"If enough dreamers attain their hopes, the supply of islands will soon be exhausted." -- New Jersey News

"The charm of the book lies in the earnestness of the writer...a real life Robinson Crusoe saga." -- Beverly Hills Citizen News
