Buried Treasure of the Pacific Northwest
Berger brings to light the long history of razor clamming as a subsistence, commercial, and recreational activity, and he shows the ways it has helped shape both the identity and the psyche of the Pacific Northwest. He illuminates the science behind the sometimes perplexing rules and restrictions that seek to keep the razor clam population healthy and the biomechanics that make these delicious bivalves so challenging to catch. And he joyfully takes part in the usually freezing cold and fruitless pursuit that attracts thousands of participants each year for a “beach-to-table” experience.
