The Wave: In the Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks and Giants of the Ocean
by Casey, Susan
Award-winning journalist Susan Casey writes a fascinating, instructive, and compelling book about colossal ship-swallowing waves and the surfers and scientists who seek them out. She presents Laird Hamilton, for whom hundred-foot waves represent the ultimate surfing challenge. But for the scientists who study the phenomenon, these mammoths suggest something frighteningly unusual brewing in the planet’s waters.
