Synopsis

The Earth's surface is mostly oceans, the human body is approximately 60% water, and the human imagination has been captivated by this life-giving, life-sustaining liquid from time immemorial. According to Carl Hiaasen, Bill Belleville "writes gorgeously and straight from the heart. In The Peace of Blue, the documentarian and nature writer guides you on a lyrical journey to the natural places in Florida and the Caribbean that have been forged and shaped by water. He poetically underscores the vitality of this most essential substance in our lives by showing the many ways in which water-driven landscapes nurture plants, wildlife--and the human spirit. Experience the thrill of traveling to the remote islands of Cuba and to sacred cenotes in the Dominican Republic. Contemplate the shores of Florida's rivers and lakes and marvel at swamps and seepage slopes. Immerse yourself in the underwater world of clear, fresh springs, and dive into the deep karst caves that are worlds unto themselves. Through adventure and contemplative excursions, Belleville shares his contagious respect--and awe--for the singularity and transcendence of the natural world.

We are companions in his search for a distinct sense of place, fellow journeymen in his quest to discover within the watery depths a greater awareness that informs and shapes our common identity.
