THE MYSTERIOUS SEA by Ferdinand C. Lane


Email this review


A convincing account of things marine, of the ocean and many facts about it, which gives a sweeping picture of the variety of life and activity on, in and around the seas. Here are details of history of the ocean, its boundaries, its floor, how it got its salt, the rivers in the sea, tides, waves, living organisms, fish life, birds. There is the picture as it relates to man; the development of guards for safety. It misses none of the glamor, drama or fascination of oceanology, and many older boys and girls too who love the sea and its mysteries will find it fascinating natural science.
