Summary "Ever since he was a boy, John Landy has been fascinated by the Australian coastline - the diversity of its plant and animal life, the romance of its history, the moods of the sea, the sunrise on lines of surf, and the ebb and flow of the tide - and he wanted to record something of this remarkable landscape. So, with camera and notebook, he began a study of the Otways, one of Australia's wildest and most beautiful coastal areas and an area that perhaps more than any other reveals the diverse nature of our vast shoreline. The result is a coastal lover's dream - superb photographs of seaweeds and birds and shells and flowers and insects - all the elements of a delicate and complex coastal ecosystem. The diary reflects the changing of the seasons - from the summer scent of the flowering Messmates to the winter glory of the heathland - and the multitude of plant and animal life inhabiting the southern shores of this great continent. It tells of shipwrecks and heroic rescues, of formidable journeys and memorable characters."--Book jacket
