About this book

Bringing together the scientific research of physical oceanographers, geologists, biologists and chemists from both sides of the Atlantic, Cramer presents a devastating report of the environmental damage that has affected the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. From her own experience, she describes the intricate and fragile web of marine life, the visible disappearance of schools of fish plundered by the competitive fishing industry, and the changing rhythms of the Atlantic from the rough, chilly Gulf of Maine to the calm, weedy currents of the Sargasso Sea.

"Cramer...has written powerfully of the threats to its continuing productivity."-William K. Reilly, Chairman, World Wildlife Fund

"[A] vital and eloquent narrative, biblical in scope...an eye-opener."-Peter Davison, author of Breathing Room

"[H]ugely satisfying....Not since Rachel Carson has there been such an intimate portrait of a whole sea."-Jennifer Ackerman, author of Chance in the House of Fate: A Natural History of Heredity

"A beautifully written portrait of an essential treasure."-Paul R. Epstein, Center for Health and the Global Environment, Harvard Medical School
