Title: Tides
The Science and Spirit of the Ocean

ISBN: 9781595348050

From Builders:

A topic that affects every boater, and coastal inhabitant, all over the world, this is an especially readable and interesting book. Subtitled The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, writer, sailor and surfer Jonathan White takes you across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean tides.

In the Arctic, he shimmies under the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for mussels in the dark cavities left behind at low tide; in China, he races the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five foot tidal bore that crashes eighty miles up the Qiantang River; in France, he interviews the monks that live in the tide-wrapped monastery of Mont St. Michel; in Chile and Scotland, he investigates the growth of tidal power generation; and in Panama and Venice, he delves into how the threat of sea level rise is changing human culture - the very old and very new.
