With all the hallmarks of Rachel Carson's luminous prose combined with a scientifically accurate exploration of the Atlantic seashore comes a hauntingly beautiful account of what one can find at the edge of the sea.
"The edge of the sea is a strange and beautiful place." Focusing on the plants and invertebrates surviving in the Atlantic zones between the lowest and the highest tides, between Newfoundland and the Florida Keys, The Edge of the Sea is a book to be read for pleasure as well as a practical identification guide. Its appendix and index make it a great reference tool for those interested in plant and animal life around tidepools.
A new generation of readers is already discovering why Rachel Carson's books have become cornerstones of the environmental and conservation movements.
