In this utterly original biography, Simon Winchester explores the life of the Atlantic; it's birth, its relationship with mankind, and what lies in store for it once man has left the stage. He charts the development of the first settlements by the Oceanside - the communities of Celts and Vikings and whose lives depended on the sea - and delves into the age of exploration, venturing to forgotten worlds. The building of some of the world's most beautiful port cities - London, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Casablanca - is also examined, along with the creation of settlements and colonies in and around the sea.
Completely unique and highly readable, Atlantic takes its reader on a wonderful journey through time, along the waves of our planet's most significant ocean.
