The Drowning of Money Island

Andrew is a native of Cumberland County, and is a contributing writer for Outside Magazine and The New York Times Magazine.

The Drowning of Money Island is an intimate yet unbiased, lyrical yet investigative portrait of a rural community ravaged by sea level rise and economic hardship, as well as the increasingly divisive politics those factors have helped spawn. It invites us to confront how climate change is already intensifying preexisting inequality.
