An extraordinary achievement in natural history and science. But it's so artfully written you forget it's a scientific treatise and find yourself reading it with sheer pleasure. - Provincetown Advocate Dorothy Sterling explores the fascinating plants and animals that inhabit the peninsulas and islands of the East Coast known as the Outer Lands. With vibrant original drawings by Winifred Lubell and a new foreword by natural historian Robert Finch, The Outer Lands is a lively, lovingly observed biography of place.
