Examines the history, ecology, lifestyles, and folklore along the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico

Blackwell North Amer
As Frederick Turner explores the three-and-a-half thousand miles of coastline that border the Gulf of Mexico in an immense curve, he examines the history, folklore, ecology, and lifeways of this underside of the North American continent. Beginning in the spring in Key West, Turner moves through the states and the seasons, sampling life in villages like Cedar Key, Florida, towns like Houma, Louisiana, and cities like New Orleans and Brownsville/Matamoros. As he travels, he explores the cuisine, experiences the varieties of locale, and talks with those who inhabit this borderland - from shrimpers and marine biologists to boxers, bartenders, musicians, and U.S. Customs officials.
A Border of Blue is a large, colorful portrait of people shaped by the shore they live on and the fragile blue gulf that lies before them.
