The Outlaw Sea (Unabridged) : Even if we live within sight of the sea, it is easy to forget that our world is an ocean world. The open ocean - that vast expanse of international waters - begins just a few miles out and spreads across three fourths of the globe. It is a place of storms and danger, both natural and man-made. At a time when every last patch of land is claimed by one government or another, it is also a place that remains radically free. With typically understated lyricism, William Langewiesche explores this ocean world, and the enterprises - licit and illicit - that flourish in the privacy afforded by its horizons. Unabridged on 6 compact discs. Read by the author.
