The award winning Saltwater People companion books look at the history of Sydney's famous coastline from Royal National Park in the south to Palm Beach and Barrenjoey in the north. The main focus is on the surfzone ... that high-energy intersection between sea and land where waves, whipped-up by wind and storms, sometimes thousands of kilometres away, announce their arrival in a final dramatic explosion … or caress it with a gentle cascade. The surfzone both attracts and influences us … and in turn our presence affects this playground on the edge of the vast Pacific.

The Saltwater People books were awarded the 2013 Biennial Frank Broeze Maritime History Book Prize sponsored jointly by the Australian Association for Maritime History (AAMH) and the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM).
