And the Coastlands Wait
is an inspirational guidepost for generations to come providing a logical, realistic step-by-step guide to the legislative process. Perhaps as important is the overall tone of the book which engenders a palpable sense of hope.

I want to point with pride and gratitude and love to two citizens of the Golden Isles without whom our marshes would not have been saved. . . .In my opinion, no group of American citizens ever had a more responsible, more intelligent, more caring and trustworthy elected official than those of us who have been represented by Reid W. Harris of St. Simons Island. I did not know him except by name until he introduced his bill to regulate the use of our marshlands several months ago. I do know Reid Harris now and this ex-cynic about politicians has had to change her tune-at least where this man is concerned. I watched him stand tall and poised under some rather exotic political battering during the last year. But he stood and his bill became law and the marshes are safe. I am writing my own point of view, but know I am joined by thousands of persons in this heartfelt tribute to a uniquely courageous and balanced public official.
