Synopsis:
This is an anthology of poetry, short fiction, and essays that convey, with deep feeling, the relationships among humans as well as our relationship to nature. Here, in abundant variety, are the unique characters of coastal life-diamondback terrapins, ospreys, moral eels, and rock fish, as well as crabbers, fishermen, and "summer people"-all forms of life are described by diction that is deliciously specific, informed by both experience and passion. The pleasure of personal discovery that compels the writers in this volume is one readers will relish and share-as guilt-free beach reading or as an armchair vacation.
