This charming book is a sweet blending of her artistic & scientific regard for the natural world. In this final installation, Carson looks at the environments of the rocky shore, the rim of sand, the coral coast, focusing on life in the zones between lowest and highest tides.

“Rachel Carson would be cause for serious regrets re: my career if she didn’t write in such a damned inspirational way. You don’t need to be a marine biologist to do and see the things she does, you just need to love nature and hang out by the sea. Barring that, all you need is free time to read and an open canvas of a mind for her words to paint on.”
