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.

I bought this as a hostess gift for a visit to a friend at the Delaware shore. Of course, I read it first and found it to be a lovely book. My friend seemed to be very pleased with it, and fortunately, no one had given it to her before I did.

This book is lavishly illustrated and highly informative. There are separate chapters on the horseshoe crab, red knots, ruddy turnstones and so on. Having recently purchased on home on the Delaware Bay, this was exactly what I was looking for.
