Description

Nova Scotia has a wealth of beautiful beaches, some well known, others hidden and treasured by those who know them. Beaches are incredibly rich in what they reveal about ecological processes and diversity.

As a biologist and naturalist, Allan Billard wanted to share the secrets that often lie in plain sight to those in the know. For this book, he chose 27 of the province's beaches, drawn from every region. Some are well known -- Lawrencetown, Martinique, Melmerby, and Blomidon. Others are well worth knowing. The narrative text, enhanced by photographer Donna Barnett's striking images, focuses on a natural process each beach illustrates, including wetland evolution, formation of a barrier beach, salt ponds, and fish nurseries. The themes span a wide range of interests.

Nova Scotia Beaches will enhance the experience of visiting any beach, but it also showcases the uniqueness of each of the 27 featured in the collection.

This book draws the reader in and, in words and pictures, shows the astonishing and fascinating diversity of Nova Scotia's coastal landscape.
