Wild Sea

Write a Review


In Wild Sea Joy McCann interweaves the fascinating environmental and cultural histories of the Southern Ocean -- long neglected by writers and historians -- drawing from sea captains’ journals, whalers’ log books, explorers’ letters, scientific reports, ancient beliefs and her own voyage of discovery. In a hybrid space where science, technology, culture, imagination and myth converge, Wild Sea explores a little-known ocean and its emerging importance as a barometer of planetary climate change
