Winner of the 2016 Florida Book Award, “Coastal Dune Lakes: Jewels of Florida’s Emerald Coast” is a full color, 132-page coffee table book showcasing 15 coastal dune lakes along the Gulf of Mexico in northwest Florida. Join writer Nic Stoltzfus and photographer Elam Stoltzfus on an odyssey spanning from Scenic Highway 30A to New South Wales, Australia, in order to illustrate the importance and ephemerality of these oft-ignored dune lakes. The pair met scientists, businesspeople, residents, and visitors all working on conserving the lakes and living in harmony with nature. This book highlights both the beauty and information discovered during the process, and is unique in its subject matter. Let the combination of stories and images both widen and deepen your appreciation and understanding of our home.
