Writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White takes readers across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean tides. His book includes such diverse accounts as hunting for mussels under the Arctic ice with an Inuit elder, racing a 25-foot tidal bore in China, and the growth of tidal power generation in Chile and Scotland.  Tides is a combination of lyrical prose, adventure travel, and scientific inquiry into the elemental, mysterious paradox that keeps our planet’s waters in constant motion. Photographs, scientific figures, line drawings, and sixteen color photos dramatically illustrate this expert tour of the tides.
