Hey! Psst! Look over to your right. Now, scroll down a little. What’s this?
Ten years ago this month, Before the Saltwater Came was first released as a hard cover book. The little book now has a second life as an electronic book, and I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it. It’s been a long time coming, and thanks to Capt. John Swallow’s tireless efforts, my dream is now a reality.
Even though the hard copy has been out of print for several years, the story is still timely; maybe even more so than when it was first released. With that in mind, I’ve decided in lieu of another traditional printing, this book will soon be available for “print on demand”. Print on demand was fairly new when I first published the book, and the formats were limited; but POD has come a long way, and I’m moving forward with the times, too. Finally!
Y’all will be the first to know when Before the Saltwater Came is available for print on demand and where you can purchase it.
Meanwhile, it is my hope that this electronic publication will spur a resurgence in the use of this book in wetland education classes and that it will also find its way into homes and libraries everywhere. In the very near future, I hope to have the companion Guidebook for Educators available in PDF format on my blog for free download. Once it’s ready, anyone who wants to use Before the Saltwater Came for wetland education can download the guidebook for free and use it as often as they like.
