Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Since the beginnings of time it had worked its will on humanity, and for as long as man could remember he had struggled against its power. But in the 21st century the battle was won. Mankind had finally conquered his age-old enemy, the sea.

Professionals like Walter Franklin now patrolled the oceans’ infinite savannahs, harvesting from the plankton prairies a crop which fed the world. But like that other great frontier, space, the sea had still not yielded up all its secrets. And men like Franklin would never rest until its every fathomless mystery had been challenged . . .

Includes a new introduction by Arthur C. Clarke
