Under the Sea-Wind takes you beneath the waves with the same kind of intimacy and wonder that made the documentaries "Winged Migration" and "March of the Penguins" such masterpieces of nature-immersion. This was the book that first established Carson as perhaps our most prescient and influential observer of the natural world. The special mystery and beauty of the sea is the setting for Rachel Carson’s memorable portrait of the sea birds and sea creatures that inhabit the eastern coasts of North America. In a sequence of riveting adventures along the shore, within the open sea, and down in the twilight depths, Rachel Carson introduces us to the winds and currents of the ocean as revealed in the lives of Scomber.
