Abstract

Many Maine islands depend on the influx of young families in order to stay viable as year-round communities, and young families need jobs, which are scarce on an island. With details on how 7th-generation islander Erin Gray and her husband Aaron cobble together a livelihood on Islesford; how Melissa and Cade Brown are raising their son, Madison, on Long Island; how Mike and Keely Felton work at jobs they love in Rockland and North Haven while living on Vinalhaven; and how Christal Applin, a Swan's Island native, has found a way to live on the island she loves by working as a realtor.
