Seaweed Chronicles explores the harvest of seaweed in the Gulf of Maine. This book is about relationships - relationships between the local people, large scale commerce, conservationists, seaweed, and all the species that depend on seaweed in one way or another. Shetterly provides us with the personal stories of individual people who work and live at the shore, about the local ecology, about the past, present and ultimately about the future. I found the book eloquently written, interesting and informative, but lacking in detail about the biology of seaweed as opposed to seaweed harvesting. Photographs and a locality map would also have been nice. ( )

This book is about seaweeds and seaweed harvesting. It is an exploration of the complexity and beauty of the wild inshore system of Maine and the people dedicated to it. Beautiful and informative combination of poetic and practical. One statement midway through the book "all river water eventually pours into the oceans" did cause me to ponder the veracity of the science and wish for closer editing. ( )
