Sentinel Island is one of the uninhabited islands in the San Juan archipelago, located just off the southern tip of Spieden Island. It is quite small, only 15 acres, with an elevation of 43 meters (141 feet). The Island was the last of the San Juan Islands to be homesteaded, described in detail by June Burn in her wonderful autobiography. The book is well known here in the Northwest and has fantastic descriptions of plants and animals, as well as life in general in the "early days." She was an amazing person, and this is truly a great book.
