Jean-Michel Cousteau's "My Father, the Captain," is a touching tribute to Jacques Yves Cousteau and other men and women who pioneered underwater exploration with JYC beginning in the 1940s. It's an easy and quick read in Jean-Michel's voice, which makes it ever-so-intimate. It's a story about a family drawn together by a passion for the sea and driven by his father's thirst for adventure. Jean-Michel writes lovingly of his mother, Simone Melchior, who he says was the equal of any sailor on JYC's crew. In many ways it's a love letter to his father and mother and also to his brother, Philippe. It's well-worth exploring again the lives of the family that reminded us of the importance of caring for the oceans.
