Review Talea Anderson praised Spotte’s writing, noting:
“Spotte is a master storyteller, bringing to life the coal miners, gang members, and Inuits he meets on his travels . . . As an ode to watery places, this book is sometimes reminiscent of work by writers such as David James Duncan . . . Recommended for readers of memoir and those interested in the intersection between culture and the environment.”
Dr. Spotte, a notable figure in the development of the modern public aquarium, has published eighteen books, including three volumes of fiction, a memoir, and a work of cultural theory. He is a Certified Wildlife Biologist of The Wildlife Society and also holds a U.S. Merchant Marine officer’s license, who began life in a tiny West Virginia coal mining town.
