Life Along the Delaware Bay: Cape May, Gateway to a Million Shorebirds is a beautiful book. The main topics of the book are the birds that stop along the shores of the Delaware Bay in Cape May County, NJ, during their migratory travels. I would have liked the discussion about horseshoe crabs, whose eggs they depend upon to power up for the last leg of their journey, to have been more. Still, I am not disappointed because this is a beautiful and informative book.
