The Log from the Sea of Cortez


In 1940 Steinbeck sailed in a sardine boat with his great friend the

marine biologist, Ed Ricketts, to collect marine invertebrates from the

beaches of the Gulf of California. The expedition was described by the

two men in SEA OF CORTEZ, published in 1941. The day-to-day story of the

trip is told here in the Log, which combines science, philosophy and

high-spirited adventure.
