The World of Tides : A Journey Through the Coastal Waters of Planet Earth Hardback

Description

In The Book of Tides, William Thomson took the reader on a mesmerising journey round the coast of Britain.

Now, he sets out with his surfboard and tidal compass to encounter the waters of the world, charting his most extraordinary sights and experiences.

These include the whirlpools of the Arctic circle, the world's biggest ever surfed wave off Portugal, the strongest whirlpool in Norway and, in Australia, the most dangerous rapids known to us. With the enticing combination of William's passionate text and collectible mapping illustrations, this is a book for anyone who feels the pull of the tides and call of the sea.
