This media-rich documentary journey explores America's Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas by cabin cruiser, kayak, bicycle, airplane, and minivan. Anthropologist/educator John Shepard and his videographer son, Nat, share encounters with alligators, oystermen, pelicans, scientists, cypress trees, deer hunters, dolphins, oil-spill workers, and endangered whooping cranes. Vivid writing, multiple videos, 360-degree panorama photography, photo galleries, interactive maps, and a full multimedia learning program on the estuaries of the Texas Coastal Bend offer perspectives on the interplay of nature and culture along what is sometimes called America's Third Coast. Sales support environmental education.
