Between Pacific tides by Edward Flanders Ricketts( Book )
21 editions published between 1939 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,345 libraries worldwide
This book describes the habits and habitats of the animals that live in one of the most prolific life zones of the world--the rocky shores and tide pools of the Pacific Coast of the United States. The intricate and fascinating life processes of these creatures are described with affectionate care. The animals are grouped according to their most characteristic habitat, whether rocky shore, sandy beach, mud flat, or wharf piling, and the authors discuss their life history, physiology, and community relations, and the influence of wave shock and shifting tide level. Though the basic purpose and structure--and much of the text--of the book remain the same, content has been increased by about 20 percent; a multitude of changes and additios has been made in the text; the Annotated Systematic Index and General Bibliography have been updated and greatly expanded (now almost 2,300 entries); more than 200 new photographs and drawings have been incorporated; and an entirely new chapter has been added--a topical presentation of the several factors influencing distribution of organisms along the shore. This edition also includes John Steinbeck's Foreword to the 1948 edition
Sea of Cortez; a leisurely journal of travel and research, with a scientific appendix comprising materials for a source book on the marine animals of the Panamic faunal province by John Steinbeck( Book )
17 editions published between 1941 and 2009 in English and held by 981 libraries worldwide
"The collaboration of two friends -- one a novelist, one a marine biologist -- produced a volume in which fascinating popular science is woven into a narrative of man's dreams, his ideals, and his accomplishments through the centuries. Sea of Cortez is one of those rare books that are all things to all readers. Actually the record of a brief collecting expedition in the lonely Gulf of California, it will be science to the scientist, philosophy to the philosopher, and to the average man an adventure in living and thinking."--Amazon.com

Una primavera de 1940, el escritor John Steinbeck y su amigo, el biólogo marino Ed Doc Ricketts, se embarcaron en un viaje que habían soñado hacer juntos mucho tiempo atrás. Mientras el mundo entero estaba a punto de sumergirse en lo que sería la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Steinbeck y Ricketts recorrieron durante seis semanas, en un pequeño barco sardinero llamado Western Flyer, más de cuatro mil millas: desde la bahía de Monterrey hacia el sur, bordeando la península de Baja California, hasta adentrarse en el casi inexplorado mar de Cortés

Renaissance man of Cannery Row : the life and letters of Edward F. Ricketts by Edward Flanders Ricketts( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Many of Rickett's letters discuss his studies of the Pacific littoral and his theories of "phalanx" and transcendence. Epistles to family members, often tender and humorous, add dimension and depth to Steinbeck's mythologized depictions of Ricketts." "Editor Katharine A. Rodger has enriched the correspondence with an introduction, a biographical essay, and a list of works cited. The book will be important for students of John Steinbeck and the development of 20th-century American fiction, as well as for those interested in the history of science, especially in the fields of marine biology and ecology."--Jacket
