The Log from the Sea of Cortez
by John Steinbeck
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 288 PAGES
The classic account of a collecting trip to the Sea of Cortez with marine biologist Ed Ricketts, first published in 1941. Subtitled "A Leisurely Journal of Travel and Research," this much-loved book captures the wonders of the Gulf of California and the joys of discovery. It's one of our favorite books. For those of you who have battled outboard engines, we especially recommend the hilarious few pages on the "Hansen Sea Cow."
