Format: Paperback
This book is a delight to look at: the illustrations are stunning, the design is clean and elegant. It's a delight to hold: the binding, the quality of the paper, the form factor. And it's a delight to read: the text is clear and concise, while packed with detail. For me, the most compelling aspect of the book is the illustrations, which Lynch brings to life on the pages. I unhesitantly recommend this book to anyone who takes pleasure in the wildlife of the North Atlantic.

The most striking aspect of this book to me, after taking in the richly and lovingly painted portraits of shoreline wildlife, is the depth of the included species. This book does not merely include the usual suspects, but includes the smallest foundation creatures at the base of the shoreline food chain on up. From the informative maps, and intuitive layout, this book is an easily pocketable gem and a great reference. -David Bolinsky

Succint offshore guide that is perfect for outdoor seashore walks. Fits well in the pocket and has ideal illustrations packaged for convenient rapid reference. Text is pertinent and complements the colored illustrations in a concise relevant way. I can't wait for the next volume addressing the southern shores.

This little field guide may not look like much, but it has a lot to offer. Lavishly illustrated and full of information, this field guide is a must have for any beachgoers, sea watchers, wildlife enthusiasts, or even just casual visitors and Atlantic Coast residents. This field guide covers all of the sea birds, fishes, marine mammals, and various other collections of wildlife that are found along the northern atlantic coast, from Norfolk, VA, all the way up to Maine and beyond.
One of the best things about this field guide is the wonderful color plates that beautifully illustrates all of this wildlife and makes identification of species much easier. When I found this guide, I could not believe it and absolutely fell in love with it.
For all nature enthusiasts along the coast, this field guide is for you. It will make an excellent addition to your library as it did for me and will surely not disappoint.
