9781462063048: The First 130 Feet: True Stories from the Dive Deck

Whether you have been diving for years or just thinking about sticking your fins in the water for the first time, The First 130 Feet: True Stories from the Dive Deck will take you on underwater adventures you won't ever forget. Journey with author Ken Barrick as he explores hidden underwater worlds, from the Inner Harbor of Baltimore to Australia's Coral Sea. This collection of short stories entertains, educates, and inspires. Experience the terror of being face-to-face with a fourteen-foot hammerhead shark in "Getting Hammered" or the exhilaration of swimming with a pack of wild dolphins in "The Company of Dolphins." In "Lost at Sea," you'll discover the helpless feeling of watching your boat drift away toward the horizon-without you aboard, and in "Did You Know?" you'll be amazed by "walking" sharks. Each story in The First 130 Feet is a unique and delightful journey into a fascinating underwater world. Prepare to dive in!

From the Author:

My friends, welcome to our second world here on earth. The underwater world, where adventure and profound experiences await you. I was thrilled to have lived these experiences and I am equally thrilled to share them with you. This is my first writing effort and I have envisioned this book as an entertainment piece. It is the perfect book for keeping in the bathroom, just next to the toilet. You and all of your guests will find it a truly special book to enjoy in those prescious moments. I hope that this book will inspire you and all of your friends to jump up from the toilet and plan your own underwater adventures. Our water is full of life and we should spend more time in it... then sitting just a few inches above it. Please enjoy these 21 short stories and then create your own! I hope to bump into you at 130 feet.
