"Winchester brings a knowledge as vast and deep as his subject to this history of the Atlantic Ocean."--Entertainment Weekly

Winchester brings a knowledge as vast and deep as his subject to this history of the Atlantic Ocean. --Entertainment Weekly"

-Winchester brings a knowledge as vast and deep as his subject to this history of the Atlantic Ocean.---Entertainment Weekly

From the Back Cover:

Atlantic is a biography of a tremendous space that has been central to the ambitions of explorers, scientists, and warriors, and continues to affect our character, attitudes, and dreams. Poets to potentates, seers to sailors, fishermen to foresters--all have a relationship with this great body of gray and heaving sea.

Winchester chronicles that relationship, making the Atlantic come vividly alive. More than a mere history, Atlantic is an unforgettable journey of unprecedented scope by one of the most gifted writers in the English language.
