    Author Tim Traver pulls you in from the very beginning with the poetic words he uses to capture an often overlooked aspect of life, salt marshes. A biography, the author talks about his childhood memories of spending summers in Mashpee, Cape Cod. This book is the easiest way to enjoy learning about different aspects of science and how salt marshes impact our lives without us even knowing. The book goes into detail on different things in nature such as birds, fish, microbes, oil and mud. The author shows the trials and tribulations of a salt marsh and how society is destroying them. The book also focuses on Woods Hole in Cape Cod. Traver talks about different scientists and what part they play in improving Sippewissett. Scientists include: Louis Agassiz, Lynn Margulis and many others. The premise of the book makes you realize not only the salt marsh but about the definition of home and how cherished your memories as a child are. The first chapter begins by giving you an overview on salt marshes and what role they play in the world. In each following chapter of the book he talks about what's going on in his life, or talks about his childhood experiences. Then, he relates science into it. The book really feels as if you were there studying the salt marsh with him. I would have to say I think the greatest accomplishment the author makes in writing this book is finding a way to incorporate his life, science, today¿s society and economy and the idea of what home is into the story. I learned a great deal from the book and I never found a dull moment because I was always learning something new. I¿ve really never learned so much and been so entertained at the same time. If you are a fan of science, the ocean, nature or just looking for a good read you are sure to love this book. Personally, the book captured my attention because I also spend my summers in Cape Cod so I made a connection with the author.
