This book takes a simple look at what it means to live by the sea. It examines basic geographical features, why people choose to live there and the risks people might have because of living by the sea, such as flooding and erosion. The book also looks at how people adapt to living by the sea and the different things people can do in their daily lives, from being a lifeguard to walking on the pier.
