Description
Information
Perhaps no other author has ever captured so vividly, the brief, haunting beauty of a tide pool, an inaccessible cave or a lone crab on the shore at night. In The Edge of the Sea, Rachel Carson, author of the best-selling classic Silent Spring, explores the complex ecosystems of the shoreline, that strange borderland between earth and water. Teeming with animal and plant life, the rock, sand and coral shorelines she describes provide rich examples of the dramatic process of evolution. Scientifically accurate drawings by Bob Hines and an overview of the standard classification system make this an ideal identification guide. Few have conveyed so conclusively their sense of awe, mystery and love of the natural world.
'Again, Rachel Carson has shown her remarkable talent for catching the life breath of science on the still glass of poetry.'
