Fun and learning come together in Georgia's Amazing Coast, an inviting collection of one hundred short, self contained features about the flora, fauna, and natural history of that fascinating place where land meets sea. Each page includes a full color illustration and breezy, fact filled commentary on coastal wildlife from fifty foot long northern right whales to single cell plankton, from shy coyotes to overbearingly sociable sand gnats. Readers will learn about the lifespan of the gopher tortoise, the acting talents of the hognose snake, the health benefits of eating pawpaws, the importance of tidal fluctuations, and much more. Written for the general reader, yet solidly researched, Georgia's Amazing Coast will spark our sense of wonder and inspire us to learn even more about our natural heritage and what all of us can do to preserve it.
