Until a thousand years ago, the Atlantic was a just a fog-covered, watery boundary at the end of the world. When death-defying sailors finally penetrated into secrets, whole civilizations changed direction. In his "biography of the ocean," Simon Winchester paddles across distant seas to retrieve forgotten stories of plunder, heroism, natural disasters, naval battles, shipwrecks, and rescues. Another eye opening, absorbing narrative by the author of The Map That Changed the World and Krakatoa.
