9780881504637: Salt Tide: Currents of Nature and Life on the Virginia Coast

A fascinating weave of science and memoir by a naturalist who draws inspiration from life among the coastal islands of Virginia.

Join naturalist Curtis J. Badger as he explores the last unspoiled barrier island ecosystem in the eastern United States. Badger's own ancestral roots in the region reach back into the 1600s, a legacy that fuels his passion and appreciation for this fragile confluence of land and sea. A beaded chain of 18 islands separates the inland shore from the Atlantic, and in this zone of protected waters lives a startling array of plants and animals. As he writes about looking for milky ribbon worms in the mudflats or paddling through spartina on a tidal creek, Badger gracefully weaves together personal history and natural science with insight and intelligence. 20 black & white illustrations.

From the Inside Flap:

Once in a long while a writer comes along who writes to intricately and movingly about a place that forever afterward readers cannot think of one without the other. Curtis Badger may well emerge as the voice of the Virginia Coast in the way Edward Abbey spoke for the Canyonlands or John Muir for the Sierras.

The coastal wilderness of Virginia is the last unspoiled barrier island ecosystem in the eastern United States. A beaded chain of eighteen islands separates the inland shore from the Atlantic, and in this zone of protected waters lives a startling array of plants and animals. "Salt Tide" is about the shore, its habits and creatures, and its fragile ecology. As he writes about looking for milky ribbon worms in the mudflaps or paddling through partina on a tidal creek. Badger gracefully weaves together personal history and natural science with insight and intelligence.

About the Author:

Curtis J. Badger is a knowledgeable observer and passionate defender of the Virginia coast, where his family has lived since the 1600s. Salt Tide is his sixteenth book. He lives in Onancock, Virginia.
