Jack Rudloe , Anne Rudloe

 "Shrimp: The Endless Quest for Pink Gold is a deep and expert look not only at an important human food source, but also of the fragile complexity of the ecosystem in which it is created."–Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino Research Professor, emeritus, Harvard University and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize "Jack and Anne Rudloe aren't just Florida literary treasures, they are national treasures. Their most recent work, Shrimp, is among their best–and that is very good, indeed!"–Randy Wayne White, author of the Doc Ford series "Rich in stories of seamen and the sea, Shrimp tells a fascinating story not only of the little creature itself, but of all the trials and tribulations the intrepid shrimper goes through to harvest it up. As scientists and marine biologists, the Rudloes know whereof they speak, and as writers, they have the talent and grace to make it interesting."–From the Foreword by Winston Groom, author, Forrest Gump "Most humans are said to be composed 90% of water, but for those of us who grew up on the Gulf of Mexico, I think that other 10% must be shrimp. The Rudloes leave the Living Dock behind for a voyage to the land of Pink Crustaceans, and I for one am happy to be aboard for that voyage." –Jimmy Buffett
