Snorkel Bob (aka Robert Wintner) remembers the day in 1955 when his fathertook him to a Walgreen’s in Miami for a two-dollar mask and snorkel—thendown to the beach and into the shallow water. A three-inch sand crab waved ingreeting from below, and Bobby looked up, sputtering to exclaim, “Oh, God! Youcan see everything!” Since then, Snorkel Bob has founded a snorkeling outfittersempire in Hawaii and developed a passion for the fish he loved as a child. SomeFishes I Have Known approaches fish as individuals—more than just a scientificinventory of teeth, a fin count, or a collection of stomach contents. Here theyare beautifully photographed and appear to swim right off the page. Part photoessay, part plea for responsible conservation, part funny observation, this is abeautiful book for anyone with a love of nature.
