The 2013 Island Journal celebrates the Island Institute's 30th anniversary with articles on young fishermen, a thriving micro-agriculture project on Monhegan, the arts economy on the Cranberry Isles, and personal reflection on island politics by Maine Congresswoman Chellie Pingree. There are three folios, from photographers Michael Seif, David Conover, and Peter Ralston, offering three distinct-and different-views of life on the Maine coast.
