I used this book for two summers when I lived on Hilton Head. My job was to drive people around on small boats and teach them about the natural wonders of barrier islands. Since I was a boat captain, not a naturalist, this book saved my bacon many times over. Anytime anyone asked me a question, I'd just grab the book and look it up, and I'd usually give it to them so they could look at the pictures. I recommend this book for anyone living near the coast in the Southeast. In fact, a lot of it is still relevant to folks in the Northeast. Some of the species are different, but the processes are still the same.

What's not clear from Amazon's description is that this book has a unique format. Each page was originally an article in the local paper, so you get one page of info per critter or process. The pages are works of art, hand-drawn and lettered in pen and ink. Any one of them would be worthy of framing. The language is clear and easy to understand, written for laymen but with enough info to satisfy naturalists. In fact, they're so beautiful and well-written that I'm here today to buy a copy for a professor of mine who teaches college classes on the geology and natural history of the East coast. There's nothing in this book he doesn't know or can't look up in a normal reference book. It's the artwork that really makes this book pop.

Don't hesitate to buy this--you won't be disappointed!

My friend was thrilled and excited to get this. The descriptions and drawings are just amazing!

This is a great book of sketches and write ups of the beautiful area referred to, by some, as low country. Birds, sea life, beach flora and fauna, and the amazing variety of life in this paradise. If you walk the beaches, it will assist you. Fishing? Identification of catch is there, sand prints, yep help there too. Leave it out on a table so you can refer to it regularly.

My wife and my eight year old granddaughter love walking along the beach and looking for unusual shells. My granddaughter is always asking my wife questions, many of which she doesn't know the answer. This book provides a wealth of information for my granddaughter's inquisitive mind. My wife also enjoys simply reading Tideland Treasure.

This is a great book. I first read it as a kid at the beach house we stayed at and just ordered one for our kids. Great educational tool and holds up after all these years.
Love the book...great knowledge of the island....
