Selected and Introduced by Aleda Shirley.

In her introduction, Aleda Shirley wrote:

"no other landscape evokes so much emotion as does the sea: grief and triumph, romance and loss, innocence and destruction. ... [but] people, more often than not, look happy when they are at the beach. ... This is the anthology I would like to have at the beach, ... the book I'd suggest to people looking for something fun and different and thought-provoking to read while stretched out on a sandy beach towel or relaxing on a screened porch -- poems, stories, and essays that offer a new way of looking at the familiar, eternal place where the sea meets land."
