For many people, seashells are just part of the beach scenery--thousands of pretty but nameless objects strewn along the shore. Other people know the names of shells but often wonder how they were formed and what type of animal lived inside. Such incidental knowledge may not seem important, but it can encourage people to observe their environment more closely and to gain a better understanding of it. As a result, they may become better fishers, more informed teachers or more conscientious stewards of our coast. To this end, the seashell guide was produced. Many collectors get started when they find an intriguing shell, perhaps after a storm, and search for it in a guide. Others, by chance, meet an experienced sheller on the beach. Talking with a collector passionate about shells is likely to spark an interest in anyone who has spent time at the coast. A walk down the beach is never the same once you begin to recognize a few shells. Gradually, you learn to use certain marks to solve the puzzle of shell identification. The walk becomes more satisfying as you recognize familiar shells like old friends, and it becomes more exciting as you look for new ones.

Die Geschichte eines Aufbruchs und einer wunderbaren Freundschaft. In Ein Jahr am Meer schildert Joan Anderson nachdenklich, ehrlich und mit Humor ihre Auszeit von Alltag und Ehe, die sie in einem Cottage am Cape Cod verbringt. Hier nun erzählt sie die Geschichte einer außergewöhnlichen Freundschaft. Zufällig macht sie bei einem Spaziergang am Strand die Bekanntschaft der 94-jährigen Joan Erikson, Ehefrau des berühmten Psychoanalytikers Erik Erikson. Während Joan Anderson sich für eine Weile bewusst von ihrem Mann zurückgezogen hat, genießt Joan Erikson die ihr verbleibende Zeit an der Seite ihres Partners, der, wie sie weiß, nicht mehr lange leben wird. Die beiden so unterschiedlichen und doch durch tiefe Empathie verbundenen Frauen reden über ihr Leben, sprechen über ihre Wünsche, Hoffnungen, Bedürfnisse. Joan Erikson, die mehr vom Handeln als von weisen Ratschlägen hält, gibt viel von ihrer Lebensklugheit weiter, wird mehr und mehr zur spirituellen Mentorin. Sie erinnert Anderson daran, wie wichtig es ist, nicht stehen zu bleiben, sondern ein Leben lang bereit zu sein, zu lernen, zu wachsen, sich zu verändern, offen zu sein für alles, was das Leben so bringt und vor allem, sich eine spielerische Herangehensweise an die Herausforderungen des Lebens zu bewahren.
