About this book

Drawing on his experiences of four decades under sail, Arms describes some of the last wild places on Earth - watching the flight of seabirds, listening to the night-breath of whales, and pondering the questions that all such encounters inspire. The result is a series of reflections as refreshing as they are wise - what John Muir did for western forests, what Edward Abbey did for the desert, Arms now does for the ocean.
