Inhaltsangabe: This is a combination of a description of the sea and its boundaries in our imaginations with an appreciation of its mysteries. These include such special places as reefs and lagoons and such strange phenomena as islands that never existed and yet appear on maps. The author takes the reader into the deeps and into the cold fear of drowning, into the marvels of marine life and the sombre zone of the wreck. The high technology of an ocean survey ship opens up a strange history of ocean maps and names, and a bleak North Sea trawler takes us into water we are trying to turn into a desert. The author also wrote "The Bell-Boy", "Gerontius", "That Time in Malomba" and "Playing With Water".
