Through this book written in the spirit of a travellogue, the author wishes to share her passion for deep-sea drilling cruises, all the nationalities represented on board, all the jobs, all the cored samples which land on the deck of the boat, the hours spent describing these rocks, the wonderful teamwork, smiles and daily “hi’s”, the tiny and the great moments of science and friendships far from cultural and political borders.
This book is illustrated with one hundred original watercolors.
