A Sea of Legends: Inspiration from the Sea

Front Cover
World Pub., 1973 - Ocean - 144 pages
In the clear tropical waters of the Red Sea, along the exuberant coral reef of Port Sudan, a great iron ship ran aground and sank many years ago. It has since been coated with a medley of graceful polyps, sponges, and gorgonians; it was invaded by scores of gaudy reef fish, feather-duster worms, starfish, and sea snails that surpass in brightness and gorgeous colors the butterflies and flowers of our gardens.
