  • 作者簡介
  • An underwater adventure with the sea creature that has captured human imagination for thousands of years

    Marine biologist Helen Scales trails the seahorse through secluded waters across the globe in a sweeping history of man's centuries-old fascination with the animal. Scales takes us from the reefs of Indonesia, through the backstreets of Hong Kong, and back in time to ancient Greece and Rome. Seen immortalized in the decorative arts—in tribal folklore, literature, ancient myth, and even on the pages of the earliest medical texts—Poseidon's Steed eloquently uncovers the intriguing history of this exotic fish.
    Our first seahorse imaginings appeared six thousand years ago on cave walls in Australia. The ancient Greeks called the seahorse hippocampus (half horse, half fish), and sent it galloping through the oceans of mythology, pulling the sea god Poseidon's golden chariot. The seahorse has even been the center of a modern-day international art scandal. A book that is as charming as the seahorse itself, Poseidon's Steed brings to life an aquatic treasure.

  • Helen Scales, PhD,?is a marine biologist based in Cambridge, England. Her doctorate involved searching for giant, endangered fish in Borneo; she’s also tagged sharks in California and once spent a year cataloging all the marine life she could find surrounding a hundred islands in the Andaman Sea. Helen is now a freelance researcher and broadcaster; she appears regularly on BBC Radio 4, Sky News, and the BBC World Service, and has presented documentaries on topics such as whether people will ever live underwater, the science of making and surfing waves, and the intricacies of sharks’ minds. She is also scientific advisor to the charity Sea Changers, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a tutor at the University of Cambridge.
