About this book

Readable account, beginning with the early, herculean efforts to map the depths during the age of sail, continuing with improvements in research methods spurred by maritime disaster and war, and culminating in the publication of the first map of the world's ocean floor in 1977. The author brings this tale to life with the personalities of the scientists and explorers involved.
