Reviews - What do customers think about An Island Scrapbook: Dawn to Dusk on a Barrier Island?
A great book for all ages Jul 12, 2004
I grew up visiting my grandparents on a Georgia barrier island and took the life of an island for granted. But with age comes wisdom and I now see the beauty and fragility of these islands even more. This book has many great drawings . One of my favorites was of the wisps left in the sand by the waving sea oats. Kids and adults will enjoy this immensely.
