Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eastern corridor of the United States may be notorious for overdevelopment, but Curtis J. Badger offers a challenge in his The Wild Coast: Exploring the Natural Attractions of the Mid-Atlantic: get off the highway and go see what the mid-Atlantic states have to offer. A companion to both Virginia's Wild Side and A Naturalist's Guide to the Virginia Coast, this new volume takes the reader on more than two dozen frequently surprising excursions through five mid-Atlantic states, offering detailed adventures for travelers wishing to explore the undeveloped territory of the East Coast. With excursions tanging from sea kayaking at Roanoke Island, North Carolina, to a visit to the hawk observatory at Cape May. New Jersey. Badget's guide promises not only factual information on birds. butterflies, holly forests, and native plants but also an entertaining narrative that captures the excitement of exploring new territory. This guidebook to both wildlife and botany will appeal to anyone journeying along the eastern seaboard, particularly those interested in trading in their offices and armchairs for a taste of the unexpected and the wild.

Book News Annotation:

Enthusiast Badger writes for those who like to go to the beach, not to stroll the boardwalk but to get good and muddy in the marshes, hidden streams, and sudden transitions from land to sea of the saltwater environment. He explores out-of-the-way delights along the shores of New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, dipping into the waters of places with names like Cape May, Assateague Island, Folly Creek and the Crystal Coast, describing the cordgrass, waterfowl, and all manner of swimming and stalking creatures. Badger's descriptions make you want to go explore and get muddy, but it might be even more fun if you could bring Badger along.
