Salt Marsh Diary

A Year on the Connecticut Coast

Mark Seth Lender

St. Martin's Press

NPR contributor and nature writer Mark Seth Lender chronicles the daily life of a salt marsh near his home

Mark Seth Lender’s home is on the edge of a salt marsh. From his front porch and back yard he is witness to an astonishing array of wildlife, but nothing he sees is more beautiful and inspiring than the birds that fill the air, perch on trees and wade in shallow water. His reports on the sighting of birds like great horned owls, little blue herons and snowy egrets are featured in the segment “Salt Marsh Diary” heard on NPR’s Living on Earth. For the first time, he has chronicled the marsh’s life in a book penned from his perch. With the soul of a poet and the precision of a naturalist, Lender transports the reader to the edge of his salt marsh and makes us both see and hear kingfishers, terns, bluebirds, egrets and other wonders that fill the sky above us.
