Renowned sailor and author Webb Chiles is philosopher, adventurer, confessor, seaman par excellence and of course, survivor.
Ariel's daughter, Melody, longs for life under the sea and unknowingly betrays her grandfather when she pays to become a mermaid.
Return to the Sea portrays the life and evolutionary times of marine mammals--from giant whales and sea cows that originated 55 million years ago to the deep-diving elephant seals and clam-eating walruses of modern times. This fascinating account of the origin of various marine-mammal lineages--some extinct, others extant but threatened--is for the nonspecialist. Against a backdrop of geologic time and changing climates and geography, this volume takes evolution as its unifying principle to help us to understand today's diversity of marine mammals and their responses to environmental challenges. Annalisa Berta explains current controversies and explores patterns of change now taking place, such as shifting food webs and predator-prey relationships, habitat degradation, global warming, and the effects of humans on marine-mammal communities.
In 1955, Anne Morrow Lindbergh published her timeless book of reflections, Gift from the Sea. This perennial favorite used the metaphor of seashells to explore the inner spiritual path, gently guiding readers to practice simplifying, quieting, shedding, and centering in a too-frantic world. Two generations later, in a far more fast-paced world, Anne M. Johnson asks women to discover the beauty and meaning of Lindbergh's timeless "shells" all over again. In Return to the Sea, she uses experiences from her own spiritual journey -- as a busy mother, career woman, and therapist -- to offer a renewed vision of ways to create intentional space in our lives for personal and spiritual growth. Shell illustrations, along with centering exercises, meditations, and journal-writing exercises, enhance each chapter's reflections on Lindbergh's original "shell" passages. Readers who loved Gift from the Sea the first time -- and women who have yet to be introduced -- welcome these reflections in a beautiful new gift edition.
Morgana, the evil sea witch, has sworn revenge against Ariel and Eric. Though their daughter Melody is fascinated with the sea, it is too dangerous for her to ever go near the water--or meet her mother's mermaid family. But when Melody becomes a teenager, the call of the sea is too strong to resist.
Contemporary Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto is known for working with salt--often in the form of temporary, intricate, large-scale installations--and he has created acclaimed projects around the world. Return to the Sea is the first book to take measure of Yamamoto's engagement with salt installations since he began making them in 1994. Yamamoto began to create art out of salt while mourning the death of his sister, out of an effort to preserve his memories. He views his installations as exercises that are at once futile yet necessary to his healing. An important aspect of the installation is the dismantling of his work at the end of each show and delivering the salt back to water, usually in collaboration with the public.
A science journalist's journey along the Pacific Coast from California to Alaska to track the status, health, habits, personality, and viability of sea otters--the appealing species unique to this coastline that was hunted to near extinction in the 18th and 19th centuries. These adorable, furry marine mammals--often seen floating on their backs holding hands--reveal the health of the coastal ecosystem along the Pacific Ocean. Once hunted for their prized fur during the 1700s and 1800s, these animals nearly went extinct. Only now, nearly a century after hunting ceased, are populations showing stable growth in some places. Sea otters are a keystone species in coastal areas, feeding on sea urchins, clams, crab, and other crustaceans. When they are present, kelp beds are thick and healthy, providing homes for an array of sealife. When otters disappear, sea urchins take over, and the kelp disappears along with all of the creatures that live in the beds. Now, thanks to their protected status, sea otters are making a comeback in California, Washington, and Alaska.
