What do all of these have in common? The answer: coastal North Carolina, home to a complex and vibrant ecosystem, a diverse population, and a rich culture all its own. For years, self-reliant natives existed in harmony with their environment. But then, thousands of visitors discovered the charms of the Carolina coast. Suddenly, everything started to change. In the name of progress, developers built condos on vast stretches of barrier islands and converted sleepy waterside villages to tourist traps replete with fast-food joints and convenience stores. In 1993, motivated by the need to protect and preserve our coast, concerned citizens founded the Southern Coastal Heritage Workshop for Educators, a series dedicated to raising awareness about our coast's unique features and traditions. Since its inception, the series has offered nine residential seminars with a hands-on, shoes-off approach to learning. Lectures are often on site, at a carver's knee or knee-deep in estuarine muck, and consultants talk from the head and the heart, sharing histories, theories, and passionate beliefs stemming from years of coastal experience. Life at the Edge of the Sea is a response to our participants' many requests for workshop leaders to "write it down." In these pages you will hear from many of the "old hands" who have made our educators' workshops a resounding success. From coastal geology to estuarine dynamics, Outer Banks brogue to boat building, working waterfronts to coastal literature, African-American history to the evolution of Cape Lookout National Seashore, and Native American archaeology to pony roundups, this book provides a glimpse into the fascinating realm of Life at the Edge of the Sea. Please join us on a behind-the-scenes tour of North Carolina's coast. We hope this revealing voyage will inspire you to learn more about our coastal culture and keep alive the spirit of our shores.

The whole town knows Lizzy's bad reputation and won't let her forget it. But when Billy Ray Davenport, the son of a widowed itinerant minister, arrives in the summer of 1959, he discovers an indomitable spirit behind the allure his father says is "designed to lead men astray." Lizzy spouts quirky bursts of wisdom and exudes an effortless sensuality that calls to him like a siren's song. Billy Ray thinks he could be the one who helps her swim against the tide of disapproval-- he could free her once and for all. But a stormy path awaits the unlikely pair. Lizzy's past can't help but shape her future, and ready or not, this beautiful and complex mystery girl is about to change Billy Ray's life-- and his heart-- forever"--Publisher's website.

Poetry. With AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA: PUSHING WATER II, Charles Alexander extends and amplifies the long poem that took shape in his 2011 volume, Pushing Water. As Alice Notley remarks, "Reading AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA is a dynamic experience, being pushed forward always. One feels constantly in touch with, behind the senses and light of the poems (words chosen with a typesetter's care), something like 'the poetry sense.' A world of grace behind things. '...the kind of poem / one might live in or among and return...' Or water ain't water, it's gently the unnamed element we're most in contact with."

The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is framed by the Mexican mainland and the Baja California peninsula. Once called the Vermillion Sea, its long narrow shape results in tidal extremes that provide a unique home for a rich diversity of marine life. The beautiful waters entice tourists from all over the world and beckon marine scientists to discover their secrets. Lavishly illustrated in the tradition of Dorling Kindersley's reference books, The Edge of the Sea of Cortez: Tidewalkers' Guide to the Upper Gulf of California is the only guide to the diverse sea creatures that can be observed along the rocky shores of the Gulf of California. In these pages, you will find a trove of valuable information whether you take this book with you along the beach, meeting the fascinating creatures at the tips of your toes, or simply read about these intertidal denizens from afar.

When the Romans retreated from northern Europe, they left behind lands of barbarians at the very edge of the known world. Yet a thousand years later the countries surrounding the North Sea were at the heart of scientific, mercantile and artistic enlightenments and controlled the first truly global empires. In The Edge of the World, Michael Pye explains how a small but treacherous body of water inspired the saints, spies, fisherman, pirates, traders and marauders who lived beside and journeyed across the North Sea to give birth to our modern world. Hugely enjoyable.' Tom Holland, Guardian 'Pye is a wonderful historian.' Terry Jones 'Astonishing. A treasure chest.' The Times 'A dazzling historical adventure.' Daily Telegraph 'Extraordinary . . . fascinating.' Observer
