Seaweed Chronicles Cover Preview 

A preview of the Seaweed Chronicles cover.  Over four years ago, I began research for a book about seaweeds. I knew about them only because I live by the shore, and they are a part of the daily landscape - high tide and low.

   These past years of learning and writing have given me a sense of the complicated depth of wild systems and the immense value of preserving them, as well as the need for coastal people to make a living. 

  Seaweed has figured in coastal cultures for hundreds of years, and its uses are growing. My book is about seaweed species, the wild lives they feed and shelter, the harvesters who cut seaweeds, and the aquaculturists who grow them. It explores the work of scientists who protect habitats that are essential to the wellbeing of the oceans, and those who struggle to provide jobs for coastal people. 

The book, Seaweed Chronicles: A World at the Water's Edge, will be in bookstores mid-August.
