My Journey to Clark's Point: A Father's Memoirs & A Daughter's Reflections is a personal account of one man's experiences throughout his life in the 20th century. Born in 1907 and passing away in 2005, he lived fully. From poverty to success in the grocery business. From logger to conservationist. The readers watch Doug become the man who ultimately helps preserve beautiful Clark's Point in Whatcom County, Washington. His daughter Patrice Clark's reflections embrace Doug's story and help us better connect with her father and his legacies.

Patrice Clark was born and raised in Bellingham. Living in the Columbia neighborhood until 1961, she and her family then moved to the southside to what is often referred to as Clark's Point. She attended school in both Seattle and later in San Francisco before returning to her hometown in 1985 and has lived on Clark's Point since 1990. Working in the nursing and mental health fields, Patrice later became a stay-at-home mother while her children were growing up. She has become increasingly more passionate about birds, wild spaces, and native plants. Working on and then writing this book with her father's memoirs has been both challenging and fulfilling in so many ways. Continuing to learn, she is open to new adventures including photography, beginning to play a ukulele taught by her 99-year-old friend, and hoping to explore more of our country's national parks.
