All over the world it was still 'the drought,' though rivers had turned to trickles, and the trickles to mud as the earth dried, cracked open, and crumbled into dust. Dust that was at first ankle-deep, then calf-deep, then knee-deep... Most of the world's population streamed oceanwards, choking the highways by the millions as theyall sought the same thing: the last of the water. And the sun beat down re morselessly on a world no longer capable of sustaining life..." - from the rear cover. A very good, tidy copy. 15.00

5 BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL Adventures in Ocean Exploration : From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood
National Geographic, Washington, D.C., 2001, ISBN:0792279921 
BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL. Adventures in Ocean Exploration: From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood. Washin gton, D.C.: National Geographic, (2001). First Trade Edition. Pp [1]-288. Illustrated. Index. 4to, blue cloth, silver lettering to front board and spine. Contents : 1. The Ancient Depths. 2. The Mysterious Sea. 3. Linking theShores. 4. The New World. 5. Ocean Highways. 6. War at Sea. 7. Science Ben eath the Sea. 8. The Living Ocean. 9. The Museum of the Deep. "One of our leading oceanographers and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Ballard describes plunging 12-000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic, finding new life in the superheated water around hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed, and locating scores of wrecks, from Phoenician galleys to the Nazi battleship Bismarck. We peer from the cramped cabin of a research submarine at bioluminescent fish glowing in the sunless depths, gasp for air as the bathyscaphe Archimede fills with acrid smoke a mile beneath the surface of the sea, and join a crack team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they “fly" a state-of-the-art unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull. But this lavishly illustrated book does much more than chronicle Ballard's own unique experiences: Intertwined with his vivid first person narrative is a concise history of humankind's age-old relationship with the oceans. Along with the giants of modern undersea exploration – Cousteau, Beebe, Piccard - he introduces the fabled seamen of the past, from ancient Phoenician, Polynesian, and Chinese sailors to such great names as Magellan, Columbus, Drake, and Cook. He explains how ships evolved from simple coastal craft to the most complex machines known to man, and shows how the search for new trade routes and the sheer love of adventure led captains everfarther over the horizon. He traces the development of navigation, naval w arfare, marine science, and much more. Capturing all the irresistible lure of the sea in nearly 200 vivid illustrations and a lively text that spans thousands of years of seafaring and oceanography, this is a book as expansive as its subject and filled with fascinating information, stirring history,and a full measure of the infectious excitement of discovery Robert Ballar d knows so well." - from the dj.

It was my desire, therefore, to make a pedestrian tour through portions of the beautiful country of Kent; and my admiratino of the genius of one of the greatest novelists of any age led me to suggesst a visit to the numerous localities associated with incidents in Dickens's inimitable and immortal works." - from pp. 3-4.

Richar d Finnie's glowing, first-hand account of the beauty of the Polar Regions and of the great strides that have been made there in transportation, mining, and agriculture read like an enthusiast's wishful thinking to people who had never heard of Goose Bay, Fort Nelson, Norman Wells or, of course the Alaska Highway or the immense Canol Project. Mr. Finnie now has the satisfaction of bringing Canada Moves North up to date with a Postscript in which he describes concisely just what the atomic age has meant to the North. Now at last the idea of the Polar Mediterranean becomes clear, highways and airports are seen as essential to safety and progress, the huge unknown territories are being carefully mapped, and the Arctic is recognized as the crossroads of transpolar aerial commerce. 'The attitude of the Government towardsocial problems in the North' he points out, 'seems to be undergoing a cha nge, and some of the policies so earnestly advocated in this book are at last being given serious consideration. ' To the thousands who served in the Arctic during the war and 'discovered' the North, this book will be of tremendous interest, and to those who have yet to visiit the northern frontier,it will be a revelation." - from the dustjacket.
