Galveston BayeBook - 2005
"Galveston Bay is the recreational center of the Texas coast - a fishing, boating, and birdwatching playground for the almost four million people who live on or near it. Sally E. Antrobus has produced a book for residents and visitors alike that tunes them in to what is happening in, on, and to the bay - the book she herself wished for when she first came to live nearby." "Beginning with a short, incisive history of the peopling of the area, Antrobus describes how the bay works ecologically and how it is put to work, for recreation and for commerce; how nature both contributes to and controls the human enterprise there; and how power and politics can destroy all the bay has to offer." --Book Jacket.
