Highly recommended.-- "Choice" "In this very . . . fascinating, and well-documented book, Sargent, a naturalist and environmental scientist, documents a year of travel to different US coastal locations. Taking both a current and historical perspective, he ponders the lives of coastal dwellers and their relationships and reactions to destructive environmental forces. Highly recommended."-- "Choice"
