The Edge of the Sea is for those laypersons interested in the various creatures that inhabit the shoreline at low and high tide. It focuses on the plants and invertebrates surviving in the Atlantic zones from Newfoundland to the Florida Keys. As a conclusion to Rachel Carson’s “Sea Trilogy” that begins with Under the Sea-wind and follows with her famous The Sea Around Us, her third book delves into the nature of life at the boundaries of sea and land. Poetically written, this book still serves as a good introduction to marine biology even though it was published in 1955. Carson also discusses the human impact on the shoreline, pollution, and quality of the ocean water itself. The book’s Appendix and Index make it a great reference tool for those interested in plant and animal life around tidepools.
Rachel Carson was a writer, scientist, and ecologist who earned her MA in zoology from Johns Hopkins University. For fifteen years she worked as a scientist and became Editor-in-Chief of all publications for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service before devoting herself full-time to writing books and articles on the environment.
We have the complete “Sea Trilogy” including Under the Sea-wind, The Sea Around Us, and The Edge of the Sea in addition to Carson’s seminal work, Silent Spring.
