Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rachel Carson elucidates the creativity and majesty of the ocean's power. She takes us from the first emergence of life through its turbulten transitions, and awakens us to the life-giving and life-sustaining qualities of the sea and our relationship with water. Once you dive into these
pages, there's no turning back. You will become completely engulfed by Rachel's magic voice as she tells the ocean's story."--The WomanSource Catalog and Review

"A classic work reprinted with all the force and drama of the original. A book about the natural world - scientific insight combined with poetic prose....The compelling mystery and fascinating allure of God's mighty ocean. A wonderful book."--The Macon Beacon

"[Carson has] a rare gift for transmuting scientific fact into lucid, lyrical language."--Time
