Strand:  An Odyssey of Pacific Ocean Debris is for anyone who has ever picked up a shell, agate, found a bone or bottle on the beach and mused about where it came from--in short, a book for beachcombers. Bonnie Henderson traces the origins and the natural history of Japanese fishing floats, the dead birds commonly found on the beach, a tennis shoe from China, a beached minke whale, a wrecked fishing boat, a mermaid's purse and as she does  so, we learn about ocean currents, marine life, human commerce and the interconnectedness of it all.
