Come fly along our North American coastal landscapes. Observe the results of the forces of tides, wind, waves, and weather in shaping them. This gorgeous book invites inquiry with its detailed and carefully selected images. The author is also a pilot, inviting readers to accompany him on his journeys to learn more about the geology of coastal areas and barrier islands. The text is stunningly enhanced with his color photography. He also introduces observers to the effects of human structures on coastal landforms. It's easy to imagine this book in an "inquiry corner" where students observe carefully to find the answers to specific geology questions. Maps, a glossary, and a sound index support these sorts of lessons.
