About this deal

From the wreckers who scour secret beaches for modern day ‘plunder’ to the free divers who can hold their breaths for minutes at a time, Wyl’s journey sees him meeting with an eclectic group of people who have one thing in common: they love the sea and its inhabitants as much as he does. The Draw of the Sea focuses its attention on the southwest peninsula and the coastlines of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Surfers sit low in the water on submerged boards and look for that longed-for ‘bump’ on the horizon that signals an incoming set of waves.

This is the plastic that is breaking down into ever smaller particles in our seas, being eaten by the fish we eat, making its ways into the stomachs of birds and whales, all the way up the food chain, leaching into our bodies, our organs and which will almost certainly outlast all of us. This is exactly my kind of non-fiction - a personal account of the natural world starting from a narrow focal point and widening out to everything it touches. Today, we’re going to show you how to draw an aquarium, so you can have your own under-the-sea adventure! The Draw of the Sea’ explores communities whose lives revolve around the coasts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. I really enjoyed this beautifully written book, which covers many aspects of living by and with the sea.Art Supplies This is a list of the supplies we used, but feel free to use whatever you have in your home or classroom. Through the experiences of those people who fully embrace the romance and adventure that seaside living provides, Wyl Menmuir explores our profound connection to the most powerful of natural forces. WINNER OF THE HOLYER AN GO AWARD 2023 Wyl Menmuir’s The Draw of the Sea is a beautifully written and deeply moving portrait of the sea and the people whose livelihoods revolve around it, examining the ephemeral but universal pull the sea holds over the human imagination.

Wyl Menmuir’s The Draw of the Sea is a beautifully written and deeply moving portrait of the sea and the people whose livelihoods revolve around it, examining the ephemeral but universal pull the sea holds over the human imagination. As unmissable as it is compelling, as profound as it is personal, this must-read book will delight anyone familiar with the intimate and powerful pull which the sea holds over us.Andrew Watts, The Spectator 'Much more interesting than simply another bound-beating book about Cornwall. Throughout the book there is a subtle but strong theme; man must respect the ocean, its creatures and change our terrible polluting ways, because we cannot survive without the seas. Light and wonder illuminate the pages of this magical book, a fitting tribute to the m Combing the beaches for things that have washed ashore, rock pooling and free diving just lend themselves to an idyllic and peaceful life. This book also serves as a strong reminder of why we need to take action to protect our oceans and seas before it is too late, managing to do so in a serious but not completely hopeless way.
