tessa Duder has edited two very successful collections of marine stories for adults, Salt Beneath the Skin and Seduced by the Sea, and has now produced a similar high quality collection of non-fiction for younger children, who also have a bit of saltwater in their veins. In this anthology of stories about the sea written by or about young New Zealanders, material has been gathered from established authors as well as schoolchildren and young adults, with 40 contributors. the collection includes dramatic stories about accidents and capsizings, with ships sinking and famous maritime incidents such as the Wahine Disaster. this is told in two stories from two startling viewpoints - a mother on board the sinking ship and her 12- year-old daughter watching from the shore. Other stories describe swimming escapades and rescues, while yet others describe experiences both common and uncommon - waka training, holiday adventures and misadventures, even finding messages in bottles. Some amusing, some exciting and some very poignant, but all evoke New Zealand's unique relationship with the sea. Ages 10 - 14

This is the sequel to the cult film. In the 1950s, the U.S. Navy encountered and destroyed a gigantic octopus that attacked shipping and wreaked havoc on the west coast of the United States. American forces killed the creature and ended the threat once and for all. Or so they thought. They were wrong. Now, another monster is rising in the warm blue waters surrounding Taru Taru, a speck of land far out in the Pacific. And this time it's worse than anyone ever imagined.

Few people would want to test their mettle in an ice-encrusted boat with Ernest Shackleton, sail the Straits of Magellan with Joshua Slocum, or watch with Owen Chase as an angry whale sends his ship to the bottom, thousands of miles from the nearest land. But it's quite another thing to read these true accounts while settled into a favorite chair. Shackleton and Chase persevered in the face of travails that would have given even Job pause. Their stoic accounts are stronger and more dramatic for their total lack of affection, their frankness, and their lack of ego. Their gripping stories are custom made for the imaginative reader who seeks adventure in a more controlled environment, safe and warm, and well fed. Civilized readers with their armchairs anchored firmly to the living room floor. Rich in drama and history, here are fifteen stories that will entertain, inform, and inspire--enduring stories that have attracted generations of readers. With contributions from: William Shakespeare Aaron Smith Joseph Conrad Erskine Childers Joshua Slocum James Fenimore Cooper Herman Melville Richard Henry Dana Jerome K. Jerome Edgar Allan Poe Richard Hakluyt Robert Louis Stevenson Owen Chase Ernest Shackleton

'I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sky and sea' John Masefield was sent to join a training ship at a young age, his aunt hoping the experience would cure him of his addiction to books. Instead, Masefield was to become one of the greatest writers on life at sea. In this collection of short stories, extracts from novels, poetry (including 'Sea-Fever' and 'Cargoes' which Betjeman said 'will be remembered as long as the language lasts') and autobiography, he writes of the hardship, romance and adventure of seafaring with a sailor's way with language and sense of a good yarn: of life in dock and on the swelling seas, of salt spray, mutiny, great storms, the spirits beneath the waves, and the devil and Davy Jones playing dice for souls. This edition includes an introduction by Philip W. Errington on Masefield's reputation, his mistreatment of his own youthful work, and his conflicted attitude to his colourful life story. It also includes a chronology, further reading and notes. Edited with an introduction and notes by Philip W. Errington
