OCEAN COUNTRY IS THE STORY OF HOW I LEARNED THAT THE ENTIRE PLANET IS “OCEAN COUNTRY” – A VAST ARCHIPELAGO OF CONTINENTS AND ISLANDS – BECAUSE THE LIFE OF THE SEAS IS SO CRUCIAL TO EACH AND EVERY FORM OF LIFE ON EARTH.
IT’S HOW I CAME TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE LIFE OF THE SEAS WAS IN PERIL AND HOW THAT PLACED ALL LIFE AS WE KNOW IT IN PERIL. 
WHAT I ALSO LEARNED WAS HOW POSSIBLE IT IS TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF OUR COLLECTIVE LIVES, IF WE HAVE THE AUDACITY AND THE COURAGE TO FACE THAT PERILOUS TRUTH AND WORK TOGETHER.

Why 21%? Because 21% is the percentage of oxygen in each breath we take and over half of that oxygen comes from plants and algae in the ocean. Every other breath is thanks to them.

“A beautifully-written memoir that shows us the ocean through Cunningham’s eyes, with grief for what is lost, awe for what remains, and glimpses of future redemption.” – Roz Savage, National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and author of Stop Drifting, Start Rowing
