The Log From the Sea of Cortez

The Log From the Sea of Cortez

By John Steinbeck

In 1940, John Steinbeck set out on an expedition with his friend Ed Ricketts, the biologist on whom he based the character of Doc in Cannery Row. Taking a sardine boat, Western Flyer, out of Monterey, California, they embarked on a 4,000-mile trip into the Sea of Cortez that combined the scientific collection and observation of marine life with high adventure, philosophy, ethics and art. The log of this journey gives a much rounder picture of Steinbeck – and h is beliefs about man and the world – than any of his fictional works. This edition also contains Steinbeck's affectionate portrait of his friend, 'About Ed Ricketts'.
