Published in 1951, The Sea Around Us was a phenomenal success. Rachel Carson's rare ability to combine scientific insight with moving, poetic prose catapulted her book to first place on The New York Times bestseller list, where it remained on top for thirty-one consecutive weeks. It stayed on the list for more than a year and a half and ultimately sold well over a million copies, has been translated into 28 languages, inspired an Academy Award-winning documentary, and won both the 1952 National Book Award and the John Burroughs Medal. This commemorative edition has over 130 beautiful, full color illustrations from all over the world -- everything from breaching whales, Christmas Tree worms and phosphorescent shrimp, to fur seals, flashlight fish, and giant squid. The volume features a foreword by Carl Safina, president and founder of the Blue Ocean Institute; an introduction by explorer Robert D. Ballard, renowned for his role in finding the Titanic as well as for his discovery of life around deep-sea hydrothermal vents; and an afterword by Brian J. Skinner, an eminent geologist and former president of the Geological Society of America

John Jacob Niles( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents a portrait of the adding machine repairman who came to eastern Kentucky in 1909, "heard the songs [his] father sang," and became a much-noted "arranger, expander, collector, recorder, and performer" of traditional Appalachian ballads. Niles played an important part in the national "discovery" of Appalachian folk music. He describes how, during the 1920s and '30s, he and photographer Doris Ulmann travelled the mountain region--she taking pictures of the people and he learning their songs. The film shows Niles in concert, at home, at work arranging his music, and explaining the historical place of balladry in American music"--Appalshop website
