Place Between the Tides

  Author:   Harry Thurston    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Based upon childhood memory and his naturalist’s journals, A Place between the Tides is the story of Harry Thurston’s return to the beloved environment of his boyhood when he moves to the Old Marsh on the banks of the Tidnish River in Nova Scotia. The book describes the seasons in the life of the marsh as filtered through two decades of Thurston’s living there.Blending acute analysis and a poet’s lyricism, Thurston explores and examines one of the most productive and biologically diverse habitats on Earth. This is a story of the salt marsh, but it is also the story of a personal odyssey, a homecoming for Thurston as a naturalist, culminating in the re-discovery of the bounty of nature where land meets sea.
