From authors Miles O. Hayes and Jacqueline Michel, A Coast for All Seasons: A Naturalist's Guide to the Coast of South Carolina is a truly unique book. It presents a deep understanding of South Carolina's exceptional coast in a delightful and completely comprehensible narrative. It explores the origins of coastal features such as barrier islands, estuaries, and the wonderful mysteries of Carolina bays. It explains the changing face of the coastline through erosion, hurricanes, and climate change.
Two coastal geologists, who have 35 years of experience conducting scientific research on the coast, tell their story of discovery and fascination through engaging conversation, richly illustrated original diagrams, aerial photographs, and satellite imagery that paints a truly complete picture of a complex topic rarely so smoothly distilled from the scientific literature.
Every coastal resident and visitor should have a copy of this book. It will help you discover new places to visit and "see" familiar places with new insights and appreciation.
