The road to realizing this vision was mined with difficulties but Sebastiani persevered, and with the help of Ducks Unlimited, he succeeded in creating a 90-acre preserve that is now home to 156 bird species and a host of other wildlife.In The Winemakers Marsh, award-winning author Kenneth Brower chronicles a year in the life of the restored wetland.

He draws parallels between the seasonal transformations of the marsh and the shifting fortunes of Sebastiani himself, sketching a sensitive portrait of the environment and the man. As a perfect complement to the text, Michael Sewells stunning photographs reveal a landscape of subtle splendor and surprising diversity.
