Description

Shallow-Water Dictionary

Shallow-Water Dictionary is both a celebration of the richness of our vernacular language and a lament on its passing—and with it, the passing of the words we need to understand the shallow-water regions, which, once the primary landscape of America, now face extinction, both physical and linguistic.

Beautifully written, Shallow-Water Dictionary is a thought-provoking and valuable addition to our knowlege of our changing landscape. Stilgoe's definitions are lyric explanations—literary, etymological, historical, vernacular—of more than 25 words and terms whose original meanings have been eroded by time.
