Funny and uplifting, personal and profound, ‘The Draw of the Sea’ will delight anyone familiar with the intimate and inescapable pull of the sea…’ooOooMeasuring roughly 22. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there’s something for every literary palate. A Serving of Crime with a Difference - You May Just Discover Something Unique, Different, or Unusual in These 20 Crime Novels. Menmuir has picked an interesting bunch of people that have a story to tell about their life on the coast. The child in me always desperately wants to find a message in a bottle, a note from another time and place, and every time I find a bottle with the cap still on, my heart leaps, even though I have yet to find one with a letter in it.Across twelve beautifully written interlinked chapters, Menmuir explores the many aspects of our relationship with the sea. This fun lesson is great for celebrating Valentine’s Day, and your finished artwork can become a sweet homemade card. Menmuir's nature writing is gorgeous, but his novelist's knack for storytelling and character development is what really lifts "The Draw of the Sea" and gives the book its heart.

There's the page turners I can't put down, that I race through cause I just wanna know what comes next. Menmuir’s evocation of our love-affair with the sea is a sublime work that stands as both a masterpiece of nature writing and a fearless exploration of the collective psyche contemplating its relationship with the Earth. I often turn to the sea and nature writing - or perhaps think I do - as a break from people but this left me with a very deep sense of connection to others that I didn't expect, expanding not only my love for the sea but love more generally. Wyl Menmuir dives deep into a world of sea-souls – swimmers and surfers and sailors, birders, beachcombers and rowers – and with meditative charm addresses that perennial, unanswerable question: what makes us so oblivious to danger and discomfort and pulls us again and again to the water?Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. I miss and long for the sea when I am not near it and Wyl Menmuir has so beautifully captured that sentiment. First, living on the West coast in Washington state next to the Pacific Ocean and now living in Florida next to the Gulf of Mexico. 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.
