Email this review


In an underwater adventure not to be missed, Earle recounts her lifelong love of the ocean and the world beneath the sea. She snorkeled as a child, progressed to scuba diving, went deeper as an aquanaut on the first team of women to live in an underwater laboratory called Tektite, and deeper still in an laboratory called Aquarius, riding the submersible Star II to the sea floor using a Jim suit. Every adventure is accompanied by striking full-color photos of Earle, the submersibles, and incredible sea life found around the world. A working scientist, the author conveys her enthusiasm and reverence for the natural world, and makes clear that there are more challenges ahead. (chronology, diagrams, index) (Nonfiction. 10-14)
