KIRKUS REVIEW

The Carolina Low Country geographically includes the coastal plain from North Carolina to Georgia and extends some seventy-five miles inland. It is this area, replete with wild life, which Alexander Sprunt, Jr., describes in a text complementary to the seventy-two line drawings by John Henry Dick. Here are the black bellied plover and sanderlings of ""the Strand"" from the North Carolina line to Myrtle Beach, the turtles of the ""Barrier Beaches"" to the south, the channel bass and bald eagle of the ""Sea Islands"" that appear between Charleston and the Georgia line. Here are creatures of the salt water marshes, the off-shore banks and cypress kingdom--where the American Cigret survives in Blake's Reserve; here are alligators, snakes, birds. Show gardens of the area are noted along with their plantations. The close is a tribute to ornithologist Arthur T. Wayne. Essentially of regional interest, with its satisfying illustarations this has a chance to come to the attention of nature lovers, particularly in the East.
