Davidson treats us to a journey into the heart of the intricate labyrinths of the coral reef, from microscopic zooplankton to such towering metropolitan structures as the Great Barrier Reef.

Aided by an eight-page, full-color photographic insert demonstrating the incredible intricacies of the reef and its unique inhabitants, The Enchanted Braid identifies the approximately 240,000 square miles of coral reef on the planet today as indispensable not only to the livelihood of the oceans but also to humans. Osha Gray Davidsons urgent clarion call to halt todays man-made degradation of coral reefs is both alarming and persuasive, effectively underscored by the rich historical context of passages from Darwins captivating diary of his seminal work on reefs 150 years ago.
