Book review: Eye of the Shoal by Helen Scales
Helen Scales’ first book Spirals in Time
took us on a journey of discovery in the blue planet and introduced us to the endlessly rich and fascinating world of seashells. With the publication of her new book Eye of the Shoal
, she revisits this underwater realm and reveals a wonderful and often illusive world inhabited by the ocean’s supreme species, fish. This brilliant account is a wonderful blend of natural and cultural history peppered with entertaining and evocative observations from her own first-hand diving experiences.
This enthralling book is packed full of intricate details and wonderful facts conveyed with a voice that remains entertaining and inspiring throughout. For anyone with an interest in our natural world and especially the aquatic sphere, the Eye of the Shoal
is an essential read.
Eye of the Shoal
is available to order from Bewick House, and through all NWT visitor centres.
