Ackerman delivers a book about discovering natural life at the ocean's edge--Cape Henlopen, at the southern lip of the Delaware Bay across from Cape May, New Jersey--and the habits of shorebirds and seabirds, the movement of sand and water, the wealth of creatures that survive amid storm and surf. It weaves together science and description with personal observation and reflection, exploring the way that landscape shapes our thoughts and perceptions.
