    "My son Tony and I wanted to inject scenery, color, action, character, and plot in environmental writing. We worked hard to make it something that would not only be very informative, but something fun to read as well."

    Stephen Palumbi, P '06, '10, director of the Hopkins Marine Station, the Harold A. Miller Professor in Marine Sciences, the Jane and Marshall Steel Jr. Professor of Marine Sciences and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment
