Description

Winner of the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize

The maritime history of the north pacific is rife with apocryphal voyages, legendary armadas, lost colonies and fabled portals through continents. Today the ocean itself is in chaos, and the reasons are mysterious. Gigantic phytoplankton blooms erupt throughout the North Pacific; ocean sunfish and albacore swim up the inlets, while the sockeye stop coming home. Is the world coming to an end? Glavin skillfully sifts through the evidence to show that nothing is as it appears. Such alarming events have occurred before and are part of what scientists call regime shifts. The world is not coming to an end.

Thoroughly researched, beautifully written and powerfully argued, The Last Great Sea by Terry Glavin, sheds light on the various mysteries of this last great sea and reveals one of the world's most mysterious places in all of its richness and complexity.

Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.
