"Marine Biologist Ed Ricketts, immortalized for his adventures with John Steinbeck in the Sea of Cortez, traveled from Monterey, California to Southeast Alaska in 1932 on an ocean journey that inspired his visionary research on wave shock theory. Ed Ricketts from Cannery Row to Sitka, Alaska presents Ricketts's wave shock theory for the first time, accompanied by family photos and recollections from his daughter, Nancy Ricketts. Also featured are essays discussing facets of his life and groundbreaking research. This book captures him at his best - inquisitive, inventive, and having a deep respect for the ocean and all its creatures." (from Publisher).
