520    Part adventure story, part manifesto, this is legendary 
       ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau's passionate plea for 
       sustaining life on earth. Explorer, diving pioneer, 
       filmmaker, inventor, and activist, Jacques Cousteau was 
       blessed from his childhood with boundless curiosity about 
       the natural world. As the leader of fascinating, often 
       dangerous expeditions all over the planet, he discovered 
       firsthand the complexity and beauty of life on earth and 
       undersea-and watched the toll taken by human activity in 
       the twentieth century.In his magnificent last book, 
       available for the first time in the United States, 
       Cousteau describes his deeply informed philosophy about 
       protecting our world for future generations. Weaving 
       gripping stories of his adventures throughout, he and 
       coauthor Susan Schiefelbein address the risks we take with
       human health, the overfishing and sacking of the world's 
       oceans, the hazards of nuclear proliferation, and the 
       environmental responsibility of scientists, politicians, 
       and people of faith. Written over the last ten years of 
       his life with frequent collaborator Schiefelbein, who also
       introduces the text and provides an update on 
       environmental developments in the decade since Cousteau's 
       death, this prescient, clear-sighted book is a remarkable 
       testament to the life and work of one of our greatest 
       modern adventurers.
