9780091940546: Beside the Seaside: A Celebration of the Place We Like to Be

A compendium of facts, fables, history and mystery about Britain's seaside

Can you remember why the sea is salty? How does the moon affect the tide? Where were Britain's most notorious places for smugglers? And what was the mystery of St Michael's Mount? There are almost as many stories about the sea as there are pebbles on the beach. Beside the Seaside is a book for anyone who has been captivated by the crash of waves on sand, thrilled by the exploits of pirates, or delighted in an ice cream at the end of the pier. Answering such questions as what to look for in rock pools, which are the best knots, and how to avoid being cursed by a mermaid, Beside the Seaside is bursting with facts, fables, history, and mystery about Britain's seaside and coast.

"Nautical but nice" * Daily Mail * "Entertaining and edifying in equal measure ... its sheer scope alone guarantees that there'll be plenty to savour" * Good Book Guide * "An end-of-pier lucky dip of seaside fun ... A fun book that is awash with edifying flotsam and jetsam" * Telegraph * "The book is packed with enjoyable, lively and interesting anecdotes" * BBC Country File magazine * "A mine of information" * Choice magazine *
