“I was really excited (well, I do live at the beach) when I heard about Oceanology, and this story of a brave, young assistant to Captain Nemo is great, even making learning fun.”
— Diana Portwood, Bob's Beach Books, Lincoln City, OR

Description


Follow the fascinating journey of Captain Nemo and explore the ocean’s wonders, both real and imagined ... or are they?

What if a sixteen-year-old assistant traveled aboard the storied Nautilus, the narwhal-shaped submarine of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? And what if he were the sole survivor of the ill-fated voyage and went on to relay his adventures to a certain . . . Jules Verne? Find this brave young man’s own account in the lavishly illustrated Oceanology, a tale of an 1866 voyage of discovery that investigates diving bells and shipwrecks; coral reefs and ice canyons; sharks, giant octopi, and luminous sea monsters; underwater volcanoes, and even the legendary island of Atlantis.
