Diving for Sunken Treasure

READ ô Diving for Sunken Treasure SUMMARY ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Jacques-Yves Cousteau The crew of the Calypso explored the sea for buried treasure In this expedition to the famous Silver Bank a coral reef in the Caribbean Coustea. From what little I have read of Cousteau s explorations and from the films of his that I have seen Diving for Sunken Treasure seems like the perfect moral tale exemplifying Cousteau s rather humanitarian relationship with the sea As he is incapable of denying every single semblance of greed in his search for the treasure of the Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion his curiosity and respect for the sea ultimately overwhelms those less admirable motives I enjoyed the structure of the book very much The chapters alternate back and forth between Cousteau s rather romantic musings from his captain s log and an impressively erudite account of 17th and 18th century Spanish maritime commerce It s easy to find Cousteau s style romantically hyperbolic at times but as I usually find to be the case it s earnest in the most sincere way therefore difficult to not come across as endearing Here is a rather lengthy example from the final chapterFrom the very first my sense of wonder at the sea has alternated with a sense of revulsion My joys have been interlaced with pain and disappointment For every pleasure that I have derived I have had to scale a mountain of aversion I was the only one who knew this and even I refused to admit it completely to myself My motive in seeking out new sites to explore in diving ever deeper in staying below ever longer in filming in fighting was certainly the satisfaction of my curiosity about the sea to dominate it to conuer it I was biologically drawn to the sea and I knew very well that I would never succeed in possessing it totally Every time that I manage to make a small discovery in the sea to find a spot of beauty or a moment of ecstasy my satisfaction is that of a man who succeeds at least momentarily in having his way with the woman he loves And as in a love affair the story of my romance with the sea is the story of temptation disappointments betrayals misunderstandings uarrels and rages Underneath it all there has always been a sense of being trapped And today resentment at the trap dominates my emotions resentment and almost hate toward the unceasingly evasive and artful love of my life And so today I will sulk I will not dive I will remain alone on this little ship bitter with accusations of infidelity running through my mindLovely isn t it Given the myriad technical complications that Cousteau bemoans throughout this dive it s no wonder that he writes with such unremitting conviction He wouldn t be the sort of man that he is famous for being if he weren t so persistent Which sort of makes him like a sisyphus of underwater exploration

I found this series of Cousteau books when we would go thrift shopping Everyone would fan out to look for vintage clothes that were cool or current clothes that were not too shabby I liked to go to the books and records A long time ago you had a pretty decent chance of finding something great I embarked upon these incredible stories Im still trying for the entire collection even though I have no place to put them My aunt and uncle built a 40 foot sail boat He told me tales of their travels to Baja when the whales were giving birth He said all the sea life and sea birds were abundant because they came to eat the after birth of the whales He said they would trade the use of their skiff for fresh shrimp and they would gather with the other boats at sea and have feasts He told me of encountering the Calypso And watching local divers bang on pots and pans so sharks would not come upon them while they were fishing They had wonderful stories about seeing Peregrine falcons Humpback whales and giant Blues Back then it must have been uite abundant still Reading Cousteau and his families first hand accounts of their adventures encounters and inventions was something that never got old for me Through their exploration we all became attuned to what we couldn t see everyday and how crucial it was to take care of it The Cousteau s Sylvia Earl And Native elders like Billy Frank Jr brought the world closer to understanding the ocean I considered myself so lucky to live near the sea in Seattle Wherever I travel I love to explore the ocean or sea shore If you have never read these books and have an interest in adventure and the ocean I highly recommend them all Young people and adults will marvel at life under the ocean
