  • Description:
    Anyone who has walked a Great Lakes shore has noticed the beautiful flowers, abundant grasses, stunted trees and patterns of sand mounds decreasing to the water's edge of cobble or packed sand. Constant change and harsh conditions have made this zone distinct biologically and geologically and geologically from inland areas. This field guide attempts to make understanding the coastal zone easy for the amateur. It has been designed for simplicity of use by beach walkers. Teachers, shoreland owners, students, tourists, nature lovers, camp groups and general beach walkers will find this book indispensable to understanding the shore and learning the most common plant species. It has purposely been written for all ages and requires no technical botanical training.
