520    "Between Pacific Tides by Edward F. Ricketts and Jack 
       Calvin is arguably the most important book about marine 
       ecology on the Pacific coast of North America. At a time 
       when almost all studies of life in the intertidal zones 
       were taxonomic, Ricketts and Calvin revolutionized the 
       field and helped to lay the groundwork for studies of the 
       impact of environmental change on the natural world. 
       Though Ricketts is perhaps best known as a quirky 
       character in John Steinbeck's fiction, he was a serious 
       marine biologist who conducted pioneering research. In A 
       Tidal Odyssey, literary scholar Richard Astro and 
       archivist Donald Kohrs explore how Between Pacific Tides 
       came to be, covering both the writing process and the long
       journey to publication. They tell three interwoven stories
       : the development of ecology as a valuable new approach to
       the study of marine life in the intertidal zone; a case 
       study of how new and dynamic science is published and 
       reaches a larger audience; and the intellectual 
       development of Ed Ricketts. Not only a scientist but also 
       an expert in music, philosophy, history, and literature, 
       Ricketts and his work impacted a broad range of writers 
       and scholars. A number of these intellectual figures 
       appear in A Tidal Odyssey, including Ricketts's co-author,
       Jack Calvin, and illustrator, Ritch Lovejoy; mythologist 
       Joseph Campbell; novelist Henry Miller; composer John 
       Cage; and of course John Steinbeck. The authors have drawn
       extensively from Ricketts's archive, including previously 
       unpublished letters, memoranda, notebooks, and 
       photographs. A Tidal Odyssey is for anyone interested in 
       the world of Ed Ricketts as well as marine biology, 
       intertidal ecology, and how ecological studies underpin 
       our understanding of the impact of environmental change on
       the well-being of our planet"--|cProvided by publisher.
