ZACA VENTURE by William Beebe


Email this review


Beebe has the faculty for making science absorbingly interesting. There is insatiable curiosity about the underwater creatures that he has brought to common knowledge through his own research and writings. This new book follows the explorations as Beebe in the Zaca skirts the coast of Lower California, through the Gulf of California, out to Clarion Island The book combines science and popular appeal, the observations are not confined to submarine creatures alone, for birds, the land and the history of the places all come in for a share of his investigations.
