About this title

Synopsis:

Describes the underwater exploration of Sylvia Earle, the woman who has set many of the current diving records

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- An exciting account of a woman who takes tremendous risks because of her love of science. Marine biologist, diver, and underwater explorer, Earle lives on the cutting edge of deep ocean exploration and the technologies that have allowed her to reach depths of 3,000 feet in a solo dive. Here, in a well-written text, Conley presents a ``window'' into Earle's more celebrated dives and into her dedication to extending readers' knowledge of the deep and protecting the vast environment of our planet's interconnected seas. They see some of the critters she has observed, and begin to comprehend the vast technological advances that enable her to stretch capabilities to the limit. They glimpse the projects under development that allow her to dream of diving the steep undersea valleys that slice deeply into the seabed. Stunning full-color photos enhance the text. A chronology of diving history is appended; endpaper maps show the ocean's trenches. Totally awesome.
