Ocean Country is an adventure story, a call to action, and a poetic meditation on the state of the seas. But most importantly it is the story of finding true hope in the midst of one of the greatest crises to face humankind, the rapidly degrading state of our environment. After a near-drowning accident in which she was temporarily paralyzed, Liz Cunningham crisscrosses the globe in an effort to understand the threats to our dazzling but endangered oceans. This intimate account charts her thrilling journey through unexpected encounters with conservationists, fishermen, sea nomads, and scientists in the Mediterranean, Sulawesi, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Papua, New Guinea.

Ocean engineering is generally considered to be concerned with studies on the effects of the ocean on the land and with the design, construction and operation of vehicles, structures and systems for use in the ocean or marine environment. The practice of engineering differs from that of science in both motivations and objectives. Science seeks understanding of the principles of nature in terms of generalizations expressed as laws and classifications. Engineering seeks the application of knowledge of the physical and natural world to produce a benefit expressed as a device, system, material, and/or process. From the standpoint of the financial sponsors of an engineering project, the ideal approach is one of minimal risk in which only proven knowledge, materials and procedures are employed. There is frequent departure from this ideal in anticipation of the increased benefit expected from a large increase in performance of a structure or device. The process of acquiring this new capability is engineering research. Historically, ocean engineering developed with the application of engineering principles and processes to the design of ships and, later, to the machinery that propels them. In most societies, naval architecture and marine engineering are recognised as the origin of ocean engineering. In fact, the design of a ship constitutes the original systems engineering programme involving hydrodynamics/fluid flow, structural design, machinery design, electrical engineering and so on as well as requiring knowledge of the ocean environment (waves, corrosion, etc.).

Originally published in 1917, This Country of Ours is a children's book that tells the story of the United States. Part I explores the landing of the Leif Ericson, a Viking, who was inspired by his countrymen's tales of a new land beyond Greenland. The stories continue through Columbus and the landings of the French, Spanish, and English on the shores of the New World. Part II of the book covers tales from explorer John Smith and Virginia colonies. Part III moves to the New England colonies and the tales of the Pilgrims, and Part IV moves to the South. In Part V, Marshall recounts tales of the Louisiana territory, Part VI takes on the American Revolution, and Part VII covers the building and rebuilding of the United States through the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. This book is suitable for children of all ages. British author HENRIETTA ELIZABETH MARSHALL (1867-1941) is most widely known for her children's books. She wrote, among others, Our Island Story: A History of England for Boys and Girls (1905) and Scotland's Story: A History of Scotland for Boys and Girls (1906).
