Naturalists and Hampton-watchers will be charmed by Priscilla Rattazzi's vision of the serene beauty of this marvelous body of water. A five-fingered tidal pond fed by springs on the east end of Long Island, it is home to a wide range of plant and animal life, including some of the rarest water birds. Leisure activity also abounds on the pond: sailing and boating (with a famous sailing regatta for its residents), fishing, swimming, kayaking, and crabbing. A portion of the author's proceeds will be donated to the South Fork-Shelter Island Chapter of the Nature Conservancy.
