Atlântico (Portuguese Edition) by SIMON WINCHESTER


Grandes batalhas marítimas, descobrimentos heróicos, tempestades titânicas e um oceano de histórias. Simon Winchester faz a crónica desta relação e lembra-nos como o Atlântico tem sido intensamente vivido e habitado. Aborda a história do oceano desde as suas origens geológicas até à época das Descobertas, das batalhas navais da Segunda Guerra Mundial à genuine luta contra a poluição e o excesso de pesca, através de uma narrativa épica, íntima e inspiradora. O fascínio pelo Atlântico levou Winchester às montanhas rochosas das Ilhas Faroé, aos portos fervilhantes de vida da Argentina e Brasil, aos castelos de escravos de África Ocidental e às povoações costeiras da Irlanda.
