Ahoy, mateys! The summer 2013 issue of Lapham's Quarterly, The Sea, is sailing into mailboxes and newsstands on June 15!
You'll want to put on your bathing suits (and your lifejackets) for this one: we've got Jacques Cousteau on the birth of modern diving, Rachel Carson on how to protect our most valuable underwater treasures, and Lewis Carroll with a compelling argument for staying on dry land.
Charts, graphs, and lists offer handy navigational tips for those lost at sea, an overview of history's most mutinous voyages, and a primer on what to charge for all that whale blubber taking up space in your freezer.
Essays include Simon Winchester on the lure of open water, Caroline Alexander on Homer and the wine-dark sea, and Maggie Shipstead on competitive circumnavigation.
