Product description

Review

"A fine book… Transparent, undeceived prose" (Kate Kellaway Guardian)

"Compelling … well-contextualised, sharply-observed, clued up, environmentally aware and deeply researched" (Independent)

"With clarity and candour, in the natural voice of a modern storyteller, she tells what she sees at the intersection of herself and whatever is delivered to her by the tide" (The Times)

"Sprackland has a wonderfully curious eye" (Financial Times)

"Simply gorgeous ... One of the finest piece of writing, nature or otherwise, to emerge this year" (Big Issue)

Book Description

Featured on Radio 4 Book of the Week in 2012. This is the ultimate beachcomber's book from a prize-winning poet and natural storyteller. Think Robert Macfarlane and Roger Deakin.
