Here at the sea's edge she shows us the watery kingdom of curious creatures who shape their lives to the rhythm of the changing tides. Lavishly illustrated by Bob Hines of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, this book is packed with precise knowledge, and derives its special authority from its constant awareness that beyond knowledge still lies mystery.
