"It's easy to get carried away with superlatives, but the depth and range of material in Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest is unprecedented and the photographs (1,700 and counting) are superb! This book pushes our appreciation and understanding of West Coast marine invertebrates to an entirely new level."
--David Rahn, Western Mariner (Praise from the Western Mariner)
"Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest is the most comprehensive collection of photographs of Pacific Northwest marine life ever published. It is designed to allow the reader to recognize virtually any coastal organism that might be encountered from southern Alaska to central California - from sea lettuces and feather boa kelp to the leopard ribbon worm, Pacific red octopus, spiny-thigh sea spider and gutless awning-clam. Each species is identified with photographs and includes a description with information on range, habitat, appearance, and behaviour.""
--Fisherman Life (Praise from Fisherman Life)

—Jennifer Ruesink and Alan Trimble, Department of Biology, University of Washington, Discovery
"Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest is, if I may say, Biblio extraordinaria. Highly recommended."
—Catherine Dook, Boat Journal
"This volume should be on every coffee table in the province. The most comprehensive photographic collection of Pacific Northwest marine life ever published."

Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest is absolutely outstanding. Exceptionally clear/vibrant/professional photographs! The "Quick Reference Guide" & "Table of Contents" are very well thought out and easy to follow. Once you pick it up, it's a hard book to put down.
Amazon packaged the order well enough, however, the only downside was the binding was tore inside the front hardcover.
Went out on a limb paying $44.00 - however, the book is worth every penny!
