Synopsis

Jacques Cousteau A Life Under the Sea by Kathleen Olmstead

Kids will savour this fascinating trip into the life and undersea world of pioneering oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. In his quest to show off the beauty found below the waves, Cousteau dedicated himself to developing new diving technology, inventing innovative ways to photograph underwater life and travelling the globe to explore different bodies of water. His films, including The Academy Award[registered]winning The Silent World , opened people's eyes to a formerly unknown and spectacular marine universe. Cousteau did more than anyone to enlighten us to the stunning complexity of the oceans' ecology and the importance of preserving it and his message resonates more than ever today. With this biography, young readers will see how Cousteau's mission began and follow his thrilling, sometimes dangerous adventures into the deep.
