Seashore life of the Northern Pacific Coast.
The book's heavy weight, glossy paper makes it tough enough to go in a pack or picnic basket and withstand smudges from sandy, salt-watered fingers. Good color and black-and-white photographs will help fine-tune your identification skills. Chapter 2, "Some Instant Zoology and Botany," makes easy, informative reading before you get to the beach. Other chapters take you from pilings to rocky shores and on to salt marshes, with many surprises along the way.
