Winner of the John Burroughs Medal and the National Academies’ award for year’s best book
Safina delivers a message full of wonder at the natural world and concern about the fragility of his subject . . . He cannot contain his delight in birds, fish, and the profusion of life on the islands he visits.
–The New York Times Book Review
Truly magnificent–Safina has done as much as anyone save Cousteau to change our relationship with the aquatic world.
A beautiful, awe-inspiring tableau of our world as you’ve never seen it . . . a moving depiction of how interconnected life on this planet truly is.
–Christian Science Monitor
Thought-provoking, witty and beautifully written . . . This is an honest first-person account of field biology in action.
One of the most delightful natural history studies in decades.
–The Boston Globe
