Just what can you find while walking the shoreline? And what will you do with it? In Washed Up, author Skye Moody splashes through history, science and anthropology to bring you the best examples of flotsam and jetsam ever found. Amber necklaces, fine candles, mattresses stuffed with incomparably luxurious Irish moss, and some of the most expensive spa treatments can trace their source to the sea. But it's not all pirates' gold and pearls: Moody reveals the strange and intriguing tales behind Taiwanese flotsam propaganda, marine evangelizing, mysterious corpses, even a flotilla of rubber ducks.--Charting humanity's ongoing, complex relationship with Poseidon's realm. The sea may taketh away---but it often giveth back.
