In this presentation, Katie Rodger discusses the interdisciplinary collaboration between scientist Ed Ricketts and writer John Steinbeck, who together created one of the seminal surveys and texts about the Gulf of California, Sea of Cortez. The men influenced each other--sharing their passions for scientific discovery and literary expression--over the span of their almost 20-year friendship. Though Ricketts spent years preparing for another collaborative endeavor in the "Outer Shores" of Alaska, their last project was left unfinished. The Log from the Sea of Cortez is the 2014 One Campus One Book selection.
