by Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Wyland Steve Creech

All of us, at one time or another, find ourselves inexplicably drawn to the sea. For some, it's a place for reflection or romance. For others, it's the thrill of watching surf crash against a sandy white beach or studying the kaleidoscope of life among a tropical coral reef. This ability of the ocean to change our lives, to inspire us, and to fascinate us is what led us to create Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover's Soul, a collection of stories from around the world that celebrate the magic of our ocean planet. The sea, from the beginning of time, has inspired great art and amazing stories. Our relationship with the ocean lies deep within our consciousness and, in fact, is in each of us. Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover's Soul has captured some of these great stories to warm your heart and touch your soul. This book has amazing stories of swimming eye to eye with great whales, sharks, and manatees, as well as legends of dolphins saving man. So get ready to dive in with Jack, Mark, and Wyland--the world's most acclaimed marine-life artist--as they guide you on a journey of discovery and stories that will lift your spirit and awaken your senses like the healing sea itself.
