About this book

Please note that this book was in the end published by New World Library.

The author has spent his life connected to the ocean and this memoir vividly and evocatively describes the mysterious powers and influence that the world's oceans can have over anyone. The book also covers his development from journalist to becoming an advocate and founder of an environmental group dedicated to protecting the world's oceans.

"This is a love story, filled as most of them are with a certain amount of pain and a great deal of pleasure. David Helvarg has done an awful lot to protect the world's oceans, not least this fine piece of writing!"
– Bill McKibben
