Islands in Time

In Islands of Time, Philip Conkling ’76 teams up with photographer Peter Ralston, co-founders of the Island Institute, to chronicle the natural and cultural history of Maine’s 5,000 islands. They provide exciting accounts of their travels among Maine’s 5,000 islands and 5,300 miles of coastline. This edition focuses on the relationships they have forged with islanders and fishermen in these remote communities who are an essential part of Maine’s heritage. The book is published by the Island Institute.
