'A fascinating guide to all things littoral: a natural history of the rockpool that teems with life...Endlessly interesting, its wonders unfurl, fractal-like, the more closely you examine it' - Cal Flyn, author of Islands of Abandonment

How do sandhoppers inherit an inbuilt compass from their parents? How do crabs understand the tides? How can the death of one winkle guarantee the lives of its companions? What does a prawn know?

In Life Between the Tides, Adam Nicolson reveals the wonders of the shoreline, from the extraordinary biology of its curious animals to the flow of our human history.

This is an invitation to the water, where marvellous things wait an inch below the surface.

Paperback, 384 pages.
