"This is a splendid book, a powerful testament to the powers and mercies of sand and wind, tide and time, full of the flights of migrating shorebirds and the scent of bayberry and the shiver of beach grass. It will make you want to walk in the sand, singing to seals." -- Sy Montgomery, Boston Globe columnist, NPR commentator and author of Journey of the Pink Dolphins: An Amazon Quest
"Shimmering, exquisite prose that offers a lyric meditation on what it means to be human and our place in nature . . . Seamlessly fus[es] ecology, history, archaeology, and naturalist observation."--Publishers Weekly
