The Last Beach is an urgent call to save the world's beaches while there is still time. The geologists Orrin H. Pilkey and J. Andrew G. Cooper sound the alarm in this frank assessment of our current relationship with beaches and their grim future if we do not change the way we understand and treat our irreplaceable shores. Combining case studies and anecdotes from around the world, they argue that many of the world's developed beaches, including some in Florida and in Spain, are virtually doomed and that we must act immediately to save imperiled beaches. After explaining beaches as dynamic ecosystems, Pilkey and Cooper assess the harm done by dense oceanfront development accompanied by the construction of massive seawalls to protect new buildings from a shoreline that encroaches as sea levels rise. They discuss the toll taken by sand mining, trash that washes up on beaches, and pollution, which has contaminated not only the water but also, surprisingly, the sand. Acknowledging the challenge of reconciling our actions with our love of beaches, the geologists offer suggestions for reversing course, insisting that given the space, beaches can take care of themselves and provide us with multiple benefits.

As their move-in date approaches, she becomes obsessed with winning the right to buy the last bungalow in Redondo Beach, convinced that the quirky, lived-in little house represents comfort, completeness-everything she is missing in her life.

Good Vibrations brings together scholars with a variety of expertise, from music to cultural studies to literature, to assess the full extent of the contributions to popular culture and popular music of one the most successful and influential pop bands of the twentieth century. The book covers the full fifty-year history of the Beach Boys’ music, from essays on some of the group’s best-known music—such as their hit single “Good Vibrations” —to their mythical unfinished masterpiece, Smile. Throughout, the book places special focus on the individual whose creative vision brought the whole enterprise to life, Brian Wilson, advancing our understanding of his gifts as a songwriter, arranger, and producer. The book joins a growing body of literature on the popular music of the 1960s, in general, and on Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys in particular. But Good Vibrations extends the investigation further and deeper than it has gone before, not only offering new understanding and insights into individual songs and albums, but also providing close examination of compositional techniques and reflections on the group’s place in American popular culture.

Recognized for its poise and fashion, Miami Beach embodies the best elements of the new American city: cultural diversity, imaginative architecture, and dazzling scenery. In many aspects, Miami Beach is a metropolitan masterpiece, sculpted by the careful hands of visionary entrepreneurs against a magnificent coastal backdrop. The evolution of Miami Beach from a small, uninhabited strip of palmetto scrub and swamp into an internationally-renowned resort is a fascinating tale of human ingenuity, endurance, and foresight. A milestone in the city's development, the year 1920 marked many significant improvement, such as the new County Causeway bridge, and many "firsts" for the expanding hamlet, including the first electric trolley, the first automated telephone system, and its first post office building. Readers of all ages will be thoroughly entertained as they explore their Miami Beach of yesteryear: a time of Prohibition and bootlegging, grand hotels and lavish casinos, budding polo fields and golf courses, and the many distinct personalities that added color and life to this burgeoning town.

Hunting for pirates' hidden gold and silver in the golden sands of a palm-fringed, exotic tropical island was the daydream of many of us when we were school kids. Unfortunately it is a fantasy that almost nobody can ever fulfill.This unusual and completely original book will tell you how anyone can embark on the next best thing though, and will take you on a layman's treasure hunt under tropical moons and blazing sunrises; sharing a few of the secrets of how to recover some of the millions of lost items of jewelry and coins that lie buried beneath the surface of many beaches around the world.Peter Jaggs spent six months searching the seashore of a Thai tourist town without previously ever having had any experience of beach metal detecting, and the diary he wrote whilst learning how to do so provides a humorous, enlightening and entertaining read. Whether you are a novice or an expert, or even if you have never picked up a metal detector before, you will find that 'Discovering Metal Detecting on a Thailand Beach' is very much more than a technical guide to amateur treasure hunting and the stories and incidents recounted in this book will amuse and surprise followers of the hobby as well as those who are merely curious.Join Peter Jaggs and share in the sights, meet some of the characters and unearth some of the treasure he found during the time he passed using a C-Scope CS4PI metal detector on the sands of an engaging beach resort in Thailand.

Surfers loathed them, teenagers flocked to them, critics dismissed them, producers banked on them—surf and beach movies. For a short time in the 1960s they were extremely popular with younger audiences—mainly because of the shirtless surfer boys and bikini-clad beach girls, the musical performers, and the wild surfing footage. This lavishly illustrated filmography details 32 sizzling fun-in-the-sun teenage epics from Gidget to the Beach Party movies with Frankie and Annette to The Sweet Ride plus a few offshoots in the snow!) Entries include credits, plot synopses, memorable lines, reviews and awards, and commentary from such as Aron Kincaid of The Girls on the Beach, Susan Hart of The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, Peter Brown of Ride the Wild Surf, Chris Noel of Beach Ball, and Ed Garner of Beach Blanket Bingo. Biographies of actors and leading actresses who made their marks in the genre are included.

As the writer's wife fights advanced ovarian cancer, pancreatitis and possible liver cancer, they turn to friends, family and their very different religious beliefs for strength, support and insight. During a dramatic two-year period their lives intersect with others experiencing tragedy, and they draw strength, inspiration and even joy from all of them-every single one of them. Jean Marsicano's life was threatened by ovarian cancer-known to many as the silent killer-and she was joined by her husband, her "Rock," as they focused on fighting the evil which had invaded her body. They counted their blessings, asked if their lives had meaning, and in the face of great adversity, they enjoyed life. Jean survived The Last Two Years thanks to three physicians-"Pal" and "Mitch" who supplied support and direction when they needed it most, and Dr. Goodman, a brilliant young physician who delivered Jean's medical care with skill, wisdom and compassion. As The Last Two Years end, they find hope in the face of continuing uncertainty and joy in friends, family and the beaches of South Carolina. And they realize "God was There," and will always be there with them.
