The collaboration of two friends-one a novelist, one a novelist, one a marine biologist-produced a volume in which fascinating popular science is woven into a narrative of man's dreams, his ideals, and his accomplishments through the centuries. Sea of Cortez is one of those rare books that are all things to all readers. Actually the record of a brief collecting expedition in the lonely GUlf of California, it will be science to the scientist, philosophy to the philosopher, and to the average man an adventure in living and thinking.
Sea of Cortez is a book to be read and remembered on two levels. It is a journey through a remote and beautiful corner of the world, a diary filled with the daily excitements and triumphs of skillful and energetic men. It is also an invitation to see the world anew from a fresh vantage point and perhaps with a broader and more understanding spirit.
Glad to find this after so many years. The boat "Western Flyer" is being restored in the Marina at Port Townsend, WA.Published 3 months ago by Karen
A fun read, which I am glad that I committed some time to reading. Probably a must for anyone visiting the gulf.Published 10 months ago by Glenn E. Monahan
Great to compare the Sea as it is now to then. Any cruiser/sailor headed that way should read it. But, don't get disappointed if the Sea is no longer as abundant as it once was.Published 14 months ago by JOEL SPENCE
Purchased this book for my husband who had heard about it and was interested in knowing more about the Sea of Cortez. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Diane C. Maragioglio
If long descriptions of what has been collected are you thing, you may love this. Otherwise, there is a lot to skim over.Published 19 months ago by ess
