Devil's Teeth Zusammenfassung

Devil's Teeth Susan Casey

Since "Jaws" scared a nation of moviegoers out of the water three decades ago, great white sharks have attained a mythical status as the most frightening and mysterious monsters to still live among us. Each fall, just twenty-seven miles off the San Francisco coast, in the waters surrounding a desolate rocky island chain, the world's largest congregation of these fearsome predators gathers to feed. Journalist Susan Casey first saw the great whites of the Farallones in a television documentary. Within months, she was sitting with the program's two scientists in a small motorboat as the sharks - some as long as twenty feet, as wide as a semitrailer - circled around them. From this first encounter, Casey became obsessed with these awe-inspiring creatures, and a plan was hatched for her to join the scientists and follow their research. "The Devil's Teeth" is the riveting account of that one fateful shark season. An exhilarating adventure story, "The Devil's Teeth" offers a glimpse into a violent, uncivilized world ruled by nature's most powerful and mysterious predators, a world where man is neither wanted nor needed.
