Summary
Unimpeded by any landmass and flowing completely around the Earth, the mysterious Southern Ocean reaches from the seasonally shifting icy continent of Antarctica to the coastlines and islands of Australia, New Zealand, South America and South Africa. Weaving together ancient beliefs, sea captains' journals, whalers' log books, explorers' letters, scientific reports with her own voyage of discovery, Joy McCann reveals the secrets of a little-known ocean and its importance as a barometer of climate change
Summary
Flowing completely around the Earth and unimpeded by any landmass, the wild and elusive Southern Ocean reaches from the seasonally-shifting icy continent of Antarctica to the southern coastlines and islands of Australia, New Zealand, South America and South Africa. In Wild Sea Joy McCann interweaves the fascinating environmental and cultural histories of the Southern Ocean -- long neglected by writers and historians -- drawing from sea captains' journals, whalers' log books, explorers' letters, scientific reports, ancient beliefs and her own voyage of discovery. In a hybrid space where science, technology, culture, imagination and myth converge, Wild Sea explores a little-known ocean and its emerging importance as a barometer of planetary climate change.
