Editorial Reviews

The US Review of Books
A Beachcombers Odyssey is a lovely book, one that makes the reader want to head for a beach immediately. It appeals to the collector, the garage saler, those who seek out the thrill of the hunt. It is about finding free treasures wherever you travel. S. Deacon Ritterbush has traveled widely in search of seaside treasures, yielding up beach glass, political pins, doorknobs, shells, ceramic shards, prehistoric fossils, driftwood, and more. . . .
This book won the 2009 Books for Better Living Award (Independent Publishers Collecting/Hobby Book), as well as a 2009 Eric Hoffer Award Honorable Mention for the Spiritual/Self-Help Book. It was also short-listed for a 2009 da Vinci Eye Medal for cover art.

    A must buy for the beach goer!

    Wonderful book! It's a beautiful book -- reminds me of "Gift for the Sea" but more interesting. The photographs are magical, luminous, so inspiring. The stories are inspirational -- made me appreciate my own life's journey even more. The science and history sections were fasinating -- traveled all over the world from my favorite chair.
