Reviews

"A lovely, soft-spoken book about the 'joy, inspiration, wonder, laughter, ideas' that come from relating to Earth's 'nonhuman world.'"
--Kirkus Review

"Here is a writer of power and persuasion; one worthy of the Rachel Carson mantle. Whitty allows us to peer into the ecological web of the mysterious World Ocean, sharing her passion for the continuation of the ocean's life-essential fabric."
--Linda Lear, author of Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature

"Rhythmic, poetic, transporting, and illuminating, this is the sacred memoir of a woman among islands of miracles, yearning with all her heart to be right where she is."
--Carl Safina, author of Song for the Blue Ocean, The View From Lazy Point

"An illuminating exploration of the swirling currents connecting oceans, science, people, and history, bearing the reader on a unique voyage of discovery above and below the waves."
--Daniel Bennett, President of The Explorers Club
