Whether you have been diving for years or just thinking about sticking your fins in the water for the first time, The First 130 Feet: True Stories from the Dive Deck will take you on underwater adventures you won't ever forget. Journey with author Ken Barrick as he explores hidden underwater worlds, from the Inner Harbor of Baltimore to Australia's Coral Sea.
This collection of short stories entertains, educates, and inspires. Experience the terror of being face-to-face with a fourteen-foot hammerhead shark in "Getting Hammered" or the exhilaration of swimming with a pack of wild dolphins in "The Company of Dolphins." In "Lost at Sea," you'll discover the helpless feeling of watching your boat drift away toward the horizon—without you aboard, and in "Did You Know?" you'll be amazed by "walking" sharks. Each story in The First 130 Feet is a unique and delightful journey into a fascinating underwater world. Prepare to dive in!
