The Seaweed Chronicles (eBook)
A World At The Water'S Edge
de Susan Hand Shetterly
Sobre o livro
An ancient, and vital, part of nature’s ecosystem, seaweed is now emerging as an increasingly important source of food in a world faced with diminishing natural resources.
InThe Seaweed Chronicles, acclaimed nature writer Susan Shetterly opens a window into the world of this fascinating plant by providing an elegant and often poetic look at life on the rugged shore of the Gulf of Maine, focusing not only on the plant life underwater, but also on the men and women who farm and harvest seaweed, and on the increasingly difficult task of protecting this critical natural resource against forces both natural and man-made.
Ideal for readers of such books asThe Hidden Life of Trees andHow to Read Water,The Seaweed Chronicles is an essential and beautiful tribute to a little-known part of our country and a little-understood but vital part of our natural habitat.
