Did you know that horseshoe crabs have been around for 200 million years? That mussels "spin" long anchor lines and climb steep slopes with them? Do you know what a "Beetlebung" tree is?

This is all part of Dorothy Sterling's fascinating description of The Outer Lands, and the plants and animals that inhabit this peninsula and chain of islands along our New England coast.

About the Author:

Dorothy Sterling (1913―2008) was a native New Yorker who lived for many years on Cape Cod in Wellfleet. She made many trips to Nantucket, Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, and Long Island. She was a painstaking and thorough researcher with a long list of natural history, biography, and fiction books to her credit.

Review:

“This lovely volume will never leave my library shelves until I again enter the enchanted land it describes.”
- Los Angeles Herald Examiner

“This book belongs in the hands of anyone who has ever been even remotely curious about the myriad forms of teeming organisms that surround us.”
- The Cape
