About this title


Paul Estronza La Violette is a marine scientist living in a large beach house of a small coastal town in Mississippi. Enthralled by the wonders of living on the Gulf Coast, he has written extensively about the life he, his wife, Stella, and Jennie, their dog, have led during the years they have lived there.

As a marine scientist, he sees the world of the coastal marsh and Mississippi Sound in a different way than many people. He talks about the birds and the marsh and the beaches; about the way the waters move in the Sound and the Barrier Islands that lie on its southern edge. In Waiting for the White Pelicans, he talks about these in a personal way, describing in an informal conversational style what he sees and how it affects he and Stella’s life as well as those of the people of the small towns along the Gulf Coast.

About the Author:

Paul Estronza La Violette has been an oceanographer for almost forty years with the government, Mississippi State University and more recently as a consultant with his own company.

He has done his marine research aboard research aircraft and ships in almost all of the world’s oceans, spending most of his time in the Arctic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and, more recently, the Gulf of Mexico.

His past publications have been oceanographic atlases, books and papers on the circulation of the world oceans and seas. Waiting for the White Pelicansis his second nonscientific publication.

He lives on a beach road in Waveland, Mississippi, with his wife, Stella, their dog, Jennie, and a black tomcat named Holly.
