520    Explorer, diving pioneer, filmmaker, inventor, and 
       activist, Jacques Cousteau was blessed from 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 his last book, written over the last
       ten years of his life and finally available in the United 
       States, Cousteau describes his philosophy about protecting
       our world for future generations. Weaving stories of his 
       adventures throughout, he and collaborator 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. Cousteau's lyrical, passionate call for action is 
       even more relevant today than when this book was completed
       in 1996.--From publisher description.
