Creatures of the Deep: In search of the sea's "monsters" and the world they live in.
"With good science and history and a clear, fresh voice, Erich Hoyt guides the reader straight down the ocean to the bottom and least known part of Earth." - Edward O. Wilson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and University Research Professor at Harward.
"Erich Hoyt is a master storyteller with a scientist's eye for detail, weaving weird and wonderful facts and figures into a page-turning story of adventure." - Mark Carwardine, zoologist and photographer.
"His literary style a joy, Erich Hoyt effortlessly transports us from a world we think we know, but clearly do not, to an exciting new frontier." - Antonia Swinson, Scotland on Sunday.
Join award-winning author Erich Hoyt on a captivating journey to the very bottom of the sea. As we descend with him through each ever-darkening layer of the world ocean and stroll along abyssal plains, midocean ridges and hadal trenches, we encounter creatures of every size and description. Beautiful and grotesque, predator and prey, each has adapted to a life far beneath the sun and waves. Hoyt's enthusiasm for this world is contagious, and the animals we meet in Creatures of the Deep are truly unforgettable.
