Tideland Treasure is an illustrated guide to the beaches and marshes of the eastern coast of the United States, encompassing seashores and wetlands from Ocean City, New Jersey, to Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Common names are used to make the information memorable for casual beachcombers and amateur naturalists alike.
