John Steinbeck and his friend, biologist Ed Ricketts, sailed down to the Sea of Cortez in March 1940. In these phosphorescent waters, they sought an understanding of mankinds relationship to the natural world, and hope for a world headed toward war.
They spend their early months near shore, riding the waves and learning how to be a sea lion. Then, as adults, sea lions move out into the ocean to forage. Watch as they shred a school of small fish in collaboration with a band of stripped marlin.
