"The special mystery and beauty of the sea, which Rachel Carson caught and translated so memorably in The Sea Around Us, is again brought before the reader as the backdrop for Miss Carson's portrait of the birds and fishes that inhabit the eastern rim of our continent. In a series of descriptive narratives unfolding the life of the shore, the open sea, and the sea bottom, the author begins with the deep hush of a spring twilight along the North Carolina coast where the night sounds of the water are the only intrusion on the stillness. In Book Two the life of the open sea is depicted in the life cycle of Scomber, the mackerel. . . Book Three encompasses the life of Anguilla, the eel, whose habitations include the gently sloping sea-bottom that forms the rim of the continents, the steep descent of the continental slopes, and finally the abyss itself."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
