Reviews

"It's hard not to compare Benchley's tale . . . with Hemingway's classic The Old Man and the Sea."--The Christian Science Monitor

"Charming."--The New York Times Book Review

"For a hot summer's day, The Girl of the Sea of Cortez is the next best thing to looking through a clear face mask into blue water swimming with fish."--United Press International
