In this rich collection of 16 short stories and essays Eyles takes the reader to the far corners of the heart and mind, as well as the ocean's realm in Micronesia, California, the Sea of Cortez and the Bahamas. These stories of the sea and man's interaction with its creatures represent the search for meaning and spirituality in the alien environment from which we came.
About the author Carlos Eyles became deeply connected to the ocean world as a child growing up on the beaches of Hawaii. His life, as first a free diving big game spearfisherman and now as an underwater photographer, has covered much of the planet's oceans and seas, a lifetime journey, which has also paralleled the decline of the ocean's great wealth. He has written eight books and countless articles about his ocean experiences. His underwater photographs are found in major books and publications worldwide. He recently returned to Hawaii to live and teach free diving.
"Eyles writes about a wilderness-the wilderness within each of us-as it is reflected back through the environment. He takes us beyond the safe confines of the unknown, like the free diver, unencumbered, vulnerable, operating in an alien environment with uncommon ease."
