Oceans cover two-thirds of the earth's surface with an average depth of more than two miles -yet humans had never ventured more than a few hundred feet below the waves. One of the great scientific and archaeological feats of our time has been to finally to cast light on the 'eternal darkness' of the deep sea. This is the story of that achievement , told by the man who has done more than any other to make it possible: Robert Ballard. View more info

Just before dawn on 18 April 1906 and for little short of a minute the earth very briefly shrugged. The effect was immediate and horrifying : a massive earthquake roared through San Francisco. This book reveals the world beneath our feet and, in telling what is in essence a universal story of man's confrontation with a most pitiless nature. There is wear to the head of the d/w and its corners. A good, clean and tight copy. View more info
