About the Author
JULIA WHITTY's first book on oceans, The Fragile Edge, was awarded the John Burroughs Medal Award, the PEN USA Award, and the Kiriyama Prize. Her cover articles have appeared in Harper's Magazine and Mother Jones, where she is an environmental correspondent. She blogs at the Blue Marble and Deep Blue Home.
"A lovely, soft-spoken book about the 'joy, inspiration, wonder, laughter, ideas' that come from relating to Earth's 'nonhuman world.'"
"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
--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
