$15.95 $14.35
by Carlos Eyles

2005 reissue with new cover art and design!

The Last of the Blue Water Hunters is the culmination of man's long trek back to the sea and his encounter with the stunning creatures that roam beneath the surface of the oceans. It is about a handful of men who broke down the final barricades of ocean myths and made their way into the last wilderness, armed with only their courage and driven by an insatiable curiosity. It is also about the sea, as viewed not by the scientist or the naturalist, but by the hunter, who sees it with a sharp, all-encompassing eye, exposing the reader to an ocean world that is never seen by the majority of divers. This is the extraordinary true account of the greatest divers in the world. Carlos takes us from his early beginnings on the island of Hawaii to his own apprenticeship with the "blue water tribe" in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico during the 1960s. There he learns to stalk the powerful game fish that inhabit the deep waters. Then, after twenty years of blue water hunting, he returns to the island of Catalina where he fulfills his dream of living off the sea using only a speargun to sustain himself. The climax of this book is an incredible expedition to the far reaches of the ocean world; the deep Pacific, the last frontier of the blue water hunter, where he stalks the giant blue fin tuna.

Dolphin Borne is an adventure story. One that holds the body, the mind and the spirit in critical jeopardy. Veteran blue water hunter Ray Messias and Novice Andy McCorkin have been swept into the dangerous waters of the Sea of Cortez, and must survive by their skills and what they carry. Carlos Eyles weaves a masterly tale that twists and turns with the unexpected that only someone who has spent a lifetime in the water could draw upon. Here in the far reaches of the ocean wilderness, the peril becomes overwhelming, the impossible becomes possible, the real becomes surreal and the messenger becomes the message. The book is at once a breathtaking adventure and a learning experience of the highest order.
