“There is no frigate like a book/to take us lands away” Emily Dickinson wrote, and I wholeheartedly agree with her. But I would like to note that books aren’t the only texts that can take us lands away. Take this issue of Plymouth Magazine, for example. Here, you will find stories that will transport you to bucolic Auroville, India for a two-week field study course in sustainability; to beautiful and intriguing Pakistan for an unforgettable visit marked by joy and tragedy; and to the eastern United States for a life-affirming hike on the Appalachian Trail.

Like every issue of Plymouth Magazine, this issue will also take you to Plymouth and the PSU campus, where you will learn about the University’s new initiatives, people, programs, and more. I think you will agree that it is a journey well worth taking.

As always, I welcome your comments and thoughts on any of the stories featured in this issue, and encourage you to share your ideas on what you would like to see in future issues.

Happy trails!
Barbra Alan, Editor
