Wild sea : a history of the Southern Ocean

McCann, Joy2018
Books
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.
