Face to Face with Sharks by David Doubilet


Face to Face with Sharks by David Doubilet

Though fierce, not all sharks are the dangerous monsters we think them to be. In fact, far more sharks are killed by humans each year than human are killed by sharks. Doubilet takes you down to the deep, where a glorious variety of this amazing family awaits you, from the famous Great White to his foot-long cousins. How close do you want to get to these marvels of the deep? Doubilet spends much of his life trying to get close enough to look them in the eye. And now, through Doubilet's remarkable photographs, you can too! Once you have seen the true beauty of sharks, you will be sad to learn that humans both fear them and destroy them in great numbers.
