In her new book, Wild Sea: A History of the Southern Ocean (NewSouth Publishing, 2018), historian Joy McCann explores the history of the vast Southern Ocean, from icy Antarctica to the southern coastlines of Australia, South America, and South Africa. From the journals of navigators centuries ago to scientific instruments today, the ocean has been more than just a scientific lab or food source, but a place where the environmental and cultural converge.
