JULY 26 BOOK SELECTION: Eye of the Albatross: Visions of Hope and Survival, by acclaimed writer & ecologist: Carl Safina.
"One of the most delightful natural history studies in decades." —The Boston Globe
ABOUT THE BOOK: Eye of the Albatross takes us soaring to locales where whales, sea turtles, penguins, and shearwaters flourish in their own quotidian rhythms. Carl Safina's guide and inspiration is an albatross he calls Amelia, whose life and far-flung flights he describes in fascinating detail. Interwoven with recollections of whalers and famous explorers, Eye of the Albatross probes the unmistakable environmental impact of the encounters between man and marine life. Safina's perceptive and authoritative portrait results in a transforming ride to the ends of the Earth for the reader, as well as an eye-opening look at the health of our oceans.
