In addition to the folio by renowned author and artist Ashley Bryan of Islesford, this issue features an article about two Dutch 'ghost' islands, stories of adaptation and loss from two U.S. barrier islands, a piece about border issues on Campobello Island, a history of island farming, and the children's authors who call Peaks Island home - and that's just a sampling of what's between the covers.
