  • Islands Apart
  • by Ken McAlpine
  • Price: $3.95

Further down the West Coast, Islands Apart author Ken McAlpine, overwhelmed by the hectic pace of his life, escapes to the Channel Islands National Park, a place where time slows down, the past reveals itself in prehistoric fossils and a person can become attuned to the rhythms of the natural world. In this touching and often humorous book, McAlpine experiences these islands as a modern-day Walden Pond—an enchanting isolated location where he can reflect on nature, civilization and what matters most.
