Book Review: Big Pacific An Incredible Journey of Exploration and Revelation

By Rebecca TansleyBateman $59.99


Once in a while, a book comes on the market that achieves something very special.  It celebrates the natural environment through superb photography and provides an education along the way.  Of course, the very best educators allow you to learn with very little effort and plenty of fascination.   New Zealand documentary maker Rebecca Tansley has created a book that allows all levels of interest and ages to marvel at our marine world.  The marine environment captured in this proud 240-page hardback gloss book makes you despair about how on earth some people could trash it with abandoned fridges etc.

One of the things I love about books of this quality is that you never know what is going to appear on the next page.  This is because the thorough research reveals some truths about our environment and its heritage that you can only learn about through diving in and absorbing tales about the various islands, graceful giants of the sea and many-armed mollusks. In sum, this is natural storytelling at is absolute finest.  This book is ideal to read to children who are sure to be enthralled sitting on a lap in a bach exploring the mysteries of our Pacific.  Now that’s education.

The Pacific Ocean has been the focus of our fascination for as long as we have lived beside and on it. It covers one-third of Earth's surface - greater than all of the planet's landmasses combined. It contains half of the world's water, hides its deepest places, and is home to some of the most dazzling creatures known to science.

Big Pacific presents the Pacific Ocean and its inhabitants as you have never seen them before, blending a wealth of Ultra HD colour photographs with spellbinding storytelling to take you into a realm teeming with exotic life rarely witnessed up close - until now.
