This New York Times bestseller by the author of the environmental classic Silent Spring beautifully details the coastal ecosystem of birds and the sea. In her first book, preeminent nature writer Rachel Carson tells the story of the sea creatures and birds that dwell in and around the waters along North America’s eastern coast—and the delicately balanced ecosystem that sustains them. Following the life cycles of a pair of sanderlings, a mackerel, and an eel, Carson gracefully weaves scientific observation with imaginative prose to educate and inspire, creating one of the finest wildlife narratives in American literature. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rachel Carson including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.

The sea and Great Lakes have inspired American authors from colonial times to the present to produce enduring literary works. This reference is a comprehensive survey of American sea literature. The alphabetical arrangement of the volume facilitates access to facts about major literary works, authors, characters, themes, vessels, places, and ideas central to American literature of the sea and Great Lakes. While the book includes entries for canonical white male authors such as Herman Melville and Jack London, it also gives considerable attention to women at sea and to ethnically diverse writers, works, and themes. Each of the entries is written by an expert contributor and many provide brief bibliographies. In addition, the volume closes with a chronology and a list of works for further reading.
