Readers for the Sea will love an inspiring new book by author Liz Cunningham. “Ocean Country” is a moving memoir, an adventure story, a call to action, and a poetic meditation on the state of the seas. But most importantly it is the story of finding true hope in the midst of one of the greatest crises to face humankind, the rapidly degrading state of our water planet.
After Liz Cunningham was nearly swallowed by a rogue wave in an kayaking accident in which she was temporarily paralyzed, she was left with a sense of despair and alienation from the waters that she had always turned to for solace and healing. As she recovered physically, Cunningham vowed that she would reconnect with the ocean and recover hope—hope for herself and for the planet’s ailing waters.
In her 2-year global voyage of discovery and recovery, Liz Cunningham crisscrosses the globe in an effort to understand the threats to our dazzling but endangered oceans. This intimate account charts her thrilling journey through unexpected encounters with conservationists, fishermen, sea nomads, and scientists in the Mediterranean, Sulawesi, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Papua, New Guinea.
