Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A guidebook with wonderful pictures, line drawings, and illustrations. . . . An invaluable resource for laypersons and students alike."--Choice

"The best word to describe this guide is 'lush.' From the gorgeous jacket photos to the hundreds of illustrations, it is a joy to behold. And because the authors are knowledgeable while at the same time wonderful writers, it is a joy to read as well."Charleston Post and Courier

"[A] naturalist's guide to the more than 800 species of plants and animals found in the habitats of one of the most biologically diverse regions on the planet. It's illustrated with 400 of Lippson's elegant pen-and-ink drawings."--Hopkins Medicine

"Crawling with more than 600 drawings, charts and photographs of birds, fish, hard and softshell creatures, plants, nuts and trees. Many are beautiful, exotic, strange. . . . After a few hours with Life Along the Inner Coast, one could want to be there."--RALPH: The Review of Arts, Literature, Philosophy, and the Humanities

"The perfect traveling companion. . . . An excellent, and some might say essential, guide to understanding the plants and animal that call the [Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway] home."--Virginia Wildlife

"Offers the reader a rich understanding of the relationship between organisms and where they live. . . . A valuable resource for naturalists, students, and anyone who lives or vacations along the Atlantic Inner Coast."--Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment

"This comprehensive work is written by recognized authorities in a discursive style that will entertain and inform the reader."--Current Books on Gardening and Botany

"This book is called a guide, but it has enough information for a marine biology course."--Woodenboat Review
