About the book

‘The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.’
Jacques Cousteau

For thousands of years, humankind has been drawn to the sea. It has stirred our imagination, and awed us with its beauty and power, and whether we experience it from the top of a blustery cliff or from the shelter of a sandy cove, from aboard a ship in a busy harbour or from the rush of a surf board, the might of the ocean is something that continues to inspire us.

This book is a tribute to our love of the ocean, and celebrates coasts and shorelines the world over. Bringing together a collection of incredible stories and legends of the sea, inspirational facts about its fauna and flora, delicious recipes and activities inspired by the seaside, and fascinating trivia on everything from marine exploration to the turning tides, it will captivate anyone who is enthralled by the wonder of the sea.
