Companion volume to the travelling exhibition that opens in April 1995 at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, Washington, D.C. This anthology contains reflections from conservationists, sailors, ocean scientists, and writers about their connections to the seas. These essays include Rachel Carson celebrating the power of the seas; Peter Matthiessen relating the hard lives of fishermen; William Beebe descending into the Atlantic in 1934 in a small steel sphere and reporting what he sees; and Jacques Cousteau taking his first dive in the newly invented Aqualung.
