The Wave by Susan Casey

I'm looking forward to The Wave by Susan Casey (September 2010). The ocean is such a incredible part of nature and can be utterly destructive. 

Scoop from publisher.

The WaveFrom Susan Casey, bestselling author of The Devil’s Teeth, an astonishing book about colossal,  ship-swallowing rogue waves and the surfers who seek them out.


For centuries, mariners have spun tales of gargantuan waves, 100-feet high or taller. Until recently scientists dis­missed these stories—waves that high would seem to violate the laws of physics. But in the past few decades, as a startling number of ships vanished and new evidence has emerged, oceanographers realized something scary was brewing in the planet’s waters.
