Part odyssey, part pilgrimage, this epic personal narrative follows the author's exploration of coasts, islands, reefs, and the sea's abyssal depths. Scientist and fisherman Carl Safina takes readers on a global journey of discovery, probing for truth about the world's changing seas, deftly weaving adventure, science, and political analysis.

Reviews

"Safina's Song is the Silent Spring for our time. The book is a page turner. But unlike the phantasmagorical novels of Michael Crichton or Peter Benchley, where a little science is thrown in to give the plot an aura of verisimilitude, Safina's book is all true and wilder and more frightening. . . . I loved this book." --Richard Ellis, Los Angeles Times"[Safina's] bright new voice joins that influential chorus, which includes Rachel Carson and Jacques Cousteau, of scientists turned eloquent ocean advocates." --Harry E. Demarest, San Francisco Chronicle"Engrossing and illuminating . . . passionate and enthralling narrative . . . [A] landmark book." --Thurston Clarke, The New York Times Book Review"You will never think about fish-or the ocean-the same way again." --Sylvia Earle, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association"If you love the ocean, read this book." --Big Game Fishing Journal Safina's Song is the Silent Spring for our time.
