Evocative black-and-white photos on two-page spreads are complemented with excerpts from poetry and songs, as well as brief quotations and anecdotes from master writers about the sea.

Herman Melville, best remembered today for his epic novel Moby Dick, is quoted: "There's magic in water that draws all men away from the land, that leads them over the hills, down creeks and streams and rivers to the sea." An appropriately atmospheric photo shows an unpaved road high above ocean dunes and leading towards the sea.

A variety of striking photographs accompany quotations by Matthew Arnold, Ralph Waldo Emerson, D.H. Lawrence, and even Seinfeld, among many others. Approximately 50 memorable seascape photos in total.
