"The edge of the sea is a strange and beautiful place."
A book to be read for pleasure as well as a practical identification guide, The Edge of the Sea introduces a world of teeming life where the sea meets the land. A new generation of readers is discovering why Rachel Carson's books have become cornerstones of the environmental and conservation movements.
New introduction by Sue Hubbell.
People who get bored by too much lolling on beaches should read it as a guidebook.
