    One thought on “Notes from the Shore”

    1. I’ve spent a rainy morning reading about crabs, horseshoe crabs (which are not crabs), finback whales, migrating shorebirds, ospreys, parakeets and mosquitoes - sea and coastal life past, present and future. When Jennifer Ackerman moves to Lewes, a small town on the southern edge of the Delaware Bay, her aim is to get to know her new home with its unfamiliar landscape through observing its plant and animal life. She walks the tidal zone and the nearby mud flats and marshes at all hours of the [...]

    2. Underrated study of the seashore and its natural residents. I have a thing for works of everyday naturalism like this. Ackerman's prose is straight-forward and clear and she is a writer in her element capturing the life around her. I used this book for research purposes for one of my recently published novellas and it was a helpful source and inspiration. Highly recommended if you would like a trip to the beach and its marshes without leaving your living room.

    3. Expecting this to be a light read about the wildlife of the Atlantic coast, I was pleasantly surprised by the mental journey it took me on. Author Ackerman based this book on her experience while doing scientific fieldwork near Lewes, Delaware, near the cape that forms the southern lip of the entrance to Delaware Bay.It started off as expected with observations of the flora and birds she observed, and I found this moderately interesting (with a little help from ) and reminiscent of my experience [...]

    4. This is a wonderful book that details many of the flora and fauna found around the shores of Lewes, Cape Henlopen, Indian River and other parts of Southern Delaware. If you visit these areas to take in the nature and scenery, this book is a must read. It is well written and will open your eyes and give a name to many of the small things you might have overlooked or ever wondered about on the Delaware Shores.

    5. A good read. Poetic science of where sea and land meet and mingle. Very interesting and informative on many levels. Worth the time. As one reviewer notes: "e chapter 'Between the Tides' alone is worth the price of admission." An to think I picked it up at a thrift store just because of its title. Acting on instinct is sometimes rewarding.

    6. Beautiful and wonderfully lyricalMany great musings on marshes, wrack lines, and marine life sprinkled with great quotes from other authors."The sea is as near as we come to another world." -Anne Stevenson

    7. It was interesting to read about the "other coast." The research that was done for this book was impressive to me. Cape Henlopen has so many different habitats in what seems like a very small area.I'm wondering what she is writing these days since this was published 12 years ago.

    8. I read this book while I was on vacation at the beach. I wish it had more history in it, but I don't think that is what this book was about. alas, maybe next year I will pick up a more historical fiction book.
