.

The Sea of Cortez is a vast body of water located between the Baja California peninsula and Mexico’s mainland. Having a surface area of 62,000 square miles it is thought to be one of the most diverse seas on the planet. So many species live in these waters that famous ocean researcher Jacques Cousteau referred to the Sea of Cortez as the world’s aquarium.

Now the Sea of Cortez plainly speaks through the words of author Michael Woodworth and the captivating illustrations of artist Craig Pennington. The Sea’s message is one for young and old alike and it is too important to be missed.


 Inside every sand dollar are five delicate structures virtually identical to doves in flight.  A man walking along the shore of The Sea of Cortez is unaware of this hidden treasure--until the Sea engages him in an extraordinary conversation. Using the doves of the sand dollar to mark its past wars with the sun, the wind, the moon and the mountains, the sea tells of the peace that came when it finally achieved balance with each of these four elements of nature.  The sea's explanation of the need for the fifth and final dove and its relationship to mankind's survival will leave a lasting impression with all who read The Sand Dollar.
