Summary, etc.: "Teaching of the Tides is a unique combination of science and mythology. It catalogues over fifty species of marine invertebrates, insects, reptiles, and amphibians found on the western shores of Vancouver Island. The Manhousat methods of retrieving, preparing, cooking and preserving these specimens are recorded in simple, understandable language while a Manhousat edlder's frank insight and environmental knowledge greatly enhances the scientific data. This is a comprehensive guide, though light and easy to read, in which zooology is reflected through the eyes of a native Canadian elder."--
