Summary
Originally published in 1951, The Sea Around Us remains one of the most enduringly influential and beloved books ever written about the natural world. It has inspired generations of readers - future scientists among them - with its combination of insight and poetry. One of them was Sylvia Earle, a pioneer of deep-sea exploration and research, who introduces this new edition. For Earle and countless other readers, Carson's power lies in giving her readers the sense that "she was the living ocean, flowing in a continuously changing dance through time with islands and continents, the sea floor below, the skies above."--COVER
