Listing Detail Tabs

HERE is the strange and exciting story of the seas - how they were born, how earth's life emerged from them, and the fantastic marine world within them. Miss Carson tells of the teeming life of the upper levels, of the icy, black, primeval depths, and of the immense forces which find their expression in the tides and currents. Here is the story of the waves which have carved out the land and of the stupendous 'snowfall' which has built up the sea bed; of the volcanic action which throws huge masses on the ocean floor; of immense mountains and desolate canyons; and of the way in which the sun and the spinning of the earth act upon the oceans. She describes the creatures which inhabit the sea. She tells of the language of the waves which, translated, brings news of earthquakes and storms raging in distant waters; of the age of the sea and of land that was once as bleak as the mountains of the moon; of tides, the birth of islands, the shape of ancient seas, and the hidden lands.
