Rachel Carson's classic trilogy comprises three volumes - The Sea Around Us (1950), Under the Sea-Wind (1941) and The Edge of the Sea (1955). The Edge of the Sea is the third and final book in the sea trilogy written by the American marine biologist. This charming book is a sweet blending of her artistic and scientific regard for the natural world. In this final installation, Carson looks at the environments of the rocky shore, the rim of sand and the coral coast, focusing on life in the zones between lowest and highest tides. Carson's descriptive and lyrical writing make this a worthwhile read for anyone who enjoys visiting the beach or is curious about what life forms may be present below the waters at high tide.
