Song for the Blue Ocean: Encounters Along the World's Coasts and Beneath the Seas
Macmillan, 15.06.1999 - 458 Seiten
To understand the connections between the sea and our own survival, Carl Safina, a world-respected scientist and fisherman, probes for truth in this tour of the oceans and their peoples. Part odyssey, part pilgrimage, this epic personal narrative follows the author's exploration of coasts, islands, reefs, and the sea's abyssal depths. Carl Safina takes readers on a global journey of discovery beneath the world's changing seas, deftly weaving adventure, political analysis, and science into a story about the human condition. We accompany people whose lives and occupations in and by the oceans unfold in a drama of clashing personal histories and daily struggles for existence.
