In “The Edge of the Sea,” Rachel Carson writes with a beautiful clarity about our very human attraction to the seashore and the deeper understanding we can find there.

It's not that I'm not liking it, it's that I only have time to read when I go to bed at night . . . and this is a bit too field guide-y for me at that time of day.
