Worth a read

A fellow sailor recommended for us to read John Steinbeck's non-fiction  The Log from the Sea of Cortez which is his account of a six week trip from California to the Sea of Cortez in 1940 on a marine study with Ed Ricketts.  I thought it was a great read and it gave us so much insight into the area we were traveling through and its marine inhabitants. The work is a mixture of factual recording of the trip and specimens collected and his philosophical pondering along the way, perhaps influenced by Ricketts.
