Exploration is at the heart of Volume 18 of Island Journal. The experience of “going there” is captured in stories about several days at sea aboard a research vessel, a pioneering 1925 expedition to Greenland, a more recent scientific trip to Iceland, and the journeys made by eight new Island Fellows to their remote host communities. The extensive center folio underscores the significant part played by Maine islands in the lifelong work of two generations of Wyeths.
