Reefscape: Reflections on the Great Barrier Reef.

THE CORAL CATHEDRAL

Australia's Great Barrier Reef, drawing more than 200 million tourists a year, is one of the most magnificent endaves of wild habitat on the planet. Reefscape: Reflections on the Great Barrier Reef (Joseph Henry Press, $24.95) by Australian writer Rosaleen Love explores the geological, ecological and biological mysteries of the threatened natural treasure within a framework of different human perspectives and interpretations. The intriguing, lyrical narrative blends together the stories of filmmakers and pirates, commercial divers and ocean activists, Aborigines and scientists. By illuminating the region's dynamic past and forecasting its future, Reefscape builds a powerful connection between people and nature.
