No region of the American South has experienced a more diverse history than the Gulf of Mexico. This so called "American Sea" has been the sight of some of our nation's greatest triumphs while also being the source of our greatest tragedies. Davis' marvelous book chronicles every moment in prose as refreshing as a summer dip in cool, coastal waters.

— From Addison
