Living in Swamps, Salt Marshes, and Other Wetlands
Swamps, marshes, and wetlands are humid, wet, and full of surprising danger. However, people have lived and thrived in these places for centuries. This book presents to young readers the challenges and rewards of living in a wet environment and focuses on how residents have adapted technology so they can live and work in these unusual habitats. The narrative also explores the importance of wetlands to the natural world and considers how climate change and natural disasters are putting many coastal and marsh areas in danger. The easy-to-read text, accompanied by compelling photographs and helpful sidebars, will engage young readers as they learn about these dynamic and precious environments.
