About this book

In this book, the author fuses his passion for the sea and his reportorial savvy into a panoramic chronicle of America's maritime history and the challenges that the coastal and marine environments face today. He dives deep into the cultures of those who know the sea in myriad ways - fisherfolk, oil-rig roughnecks, hurricane forecasters, coastal developers, navy personnel, scientists, and surfers - and profiles the growing efforts by coastal citizens and local governments to restore and protect the health of the oceans in the face of wide-open development along the coasts and offshore.

Demonstrating how national policymaking on the oceans is enmeshed in a welter of competing jurisdictions, he argues for strong omnibus legislation and the creation of truly protected marine wilderness reserves.

Kennedy Jr., president, Waterkeeper Alliance" "the most comprehensive account available of the state of our nation's oceans, and the best reporting on how they got that way", Bill McKibben
