    We've been taking a lot of beach walks lately can't imagine why and this guidebook has been seeing a good deal of use It's a good one The writing is clear the photos are good the writer is knowledgeable the binding is sturdy I have no complaints If you live in this area or visit regularly this would be a fine guide to seashore life Recommended 47 starsThe competition is Beyond The Beach Blanket A Field Guide To Southern California Coastal Wildlife by Marina Curtis Tidwell We own both of these and use both regularly Here's my review of the Tidewell guide book is better written and she's a local Sept is from BC But if you're buying just one I'd go with the Sept for the better photos But if you just like to have guidebooks

    This is an amazing guide My husband and I are finding it a very useful accompaniment resource as we go through our naturalist training at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve What I really like best about it is its full color pictures and organization Most of the guides we found were organized in such a fashion that the descriptions of life and habitat and whatnot would be found on one page and then you had to flip through the book to find the pictures This book is concise with both descriptions and pictures found on the same page Various species are divided by easy to identify color coded phyla This is a handy guide for the expert as much as it for the common beachcomber

    WHY a friend said of the pacific NW guide The landslide winner on the ease of use meets comprehensive information front was Beachcomber’s Guide to Seashore Life in the Pacific Northwest Revised It had every a photo of every single creature we found along with just enough hard science to satisfy the boy’s curiosity While we live in the NW we travel freuently to California so I think we'd best have this one too

    This is a nice colorful guide to the often mystifying world of intertidal California Most of the common things you're likely to encounter are in there and it's small enough to fit in a big pocket The binding is also sturdy and I believe the cover and pages hold up fairly well to a good splashing or dunking

    Although uite limited in scope this gorgeously photographed guidebook is a great way to get to know a few of the common rocky and other intertidal critters here in CA The guide to tide pool sites along the coast at the end is uite helpful as well
