Seacoast Reader: A Nature Conservancy Book by John A. Murray

A collection of the finest nature essays on the seashores, beaches, and reefs of the world. The Lyons Press is proud to announce the second book in its series of nature anthologies in partnership with The Nature Conservancy-the renowned conservation organization over 900,000 members strong, that works to protect the biodiversity of our ocean. In this volume we celebrate the coastal regions of the world with twenty-two literary works that range over three continents, two oceans, and a hundred and fifty years: Charles Darwin on the island shores of the Indian Ocean; John Muir on Alaska's coast in the 1800s; Rachel Carson on the reef flats of Florida; Barry Lopez on beached whales on the Oregon coast; Rick Bass on the effects of tourism on an island paradise; and more.
