Summary
Young explorers will dive into this illustrated biography of the renowned oceanographer. Roaming the ocean floor in an aqua suit, codesigning a one-person spherical bubble, and plunging 13,000 feet in a Japanese submersible did not satisfy Earle's oceanic wanderlust. In 1970 she realized her dream to "live" underwater; she spent two weeks 50 feet below the surface, observing the daily habits of sea creatures day and night
