About this book

Acclaimed as "the premier chronicler of America's complex relationship with our oceans" (Honolulu Weekly), David Helvarg has also been a war correspondent, investigative journalist, documentary producer, and private investigator. The one constant in this adventurous life has been love for the sea. This eloquent and honestly told tale of the changes in one man's journey and the world's ocean over the last half-century is a profound, startling, and sometimes surprisingly funny reflection of the state of our seas and the intimate ways in which our lives are all linked to the natural world around us. From bodysurfing in Central American war zones, diving barrier reefs, and literally bumping into a whale off Antarctica, Helvarg's story will captivate not only ocean lovers and activists but anyone who appreciates a life well lived and a tale well told.
