In ‘Magnetic Isle’, Gladys Bloomfield (1919 – 2007) shares her first-hand knowledge of Savary life during the time she lived there as a child in the 1920s, until she stopped writing in the 90s. The book also includes information about the island’s formation, its discovery and settlement. It contains stories about and interviews with some of the early pioneers who have had a profound effect on Savary, such as Harry Keefer, Jim Spilsbury, Louie Anderson, the Mace family, R.S. Sherman, and Jack Green, whose treasure is still said to be buried somewhere on the island. Gladys’s words are illustrated with over 60 historical photographs. Her dream was to one day write a book about the island she loved so much, and the society is gratified to have helped in fulfilling that dream.
