|The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of
California, is framed by the Mexican mainland and the Baja California
peninsula. Once called the Vermillion Sea, its long narrow shape
results in tidal extremes that provide a unique home for a rich
diversity of marine life.
The beautiful waters entice tourists from all over the world and beckon
marine scientists to discover their secrets. Lavishly illustrated in
the tradition of Dorling Kindersley’s reference books, The Edge of the
Sea of Cortez: Tidewalkers’ Guide to the Upper Gulf of California
the only guide to the diverse sea creatures that can be observed along
the rocky shores of the Gulf of California.
In these pages, you will find a trove of valuable information whether
you take this book with you along the beach, meeting the fascinating
creatures at the tips of your toes, or simply read about these
intertidal denizens from afar.
