Pathways: Grade 4 Far From Shore Tradebook
Author(s): KH Pathways (Sophie Webb)
From a boat in extremely deep waters, the vast sea appears empty. But as naturalist and artist Sophie Webb shows us, it is full of fascinating yet difficult-to-study life. In a little corner of the ship’s lab, with her water jar duct-taped to the counter, Sophie Webb sits and paints and journals, even when the ship bounces and rocks from winds and waves. Together with her shipmates, Sophie counts and collects samples of life in the deep ocean, from seabirds to dolphins, from winged fish to whales. Only their long-term fieldwork can really help scientists determine the health of these remarkable creatures who need the clean deep ocean to survive.
