KIRKUS REVIEW

The sea, as it covers about two-thirds of the earth's surface, represents a vital area of study to anyone who professes an interest in the natural universe. Author of eleven books on natural science, Maurice Burton and his illustrator, Jane Burton, explore the seas from every possible point of view. Buried treasure, marine life and vegetation, exploratory tools, underwater vesseles, and shells all come under their careful scrutiny as they reveal an impressive fund of information about this obscure world, which more and more excites the interest of both scientist and athlete. Written with enthusiasm, lucidity, and comprehension.
