Alana is the daugther of Heidi Faria. This novel goes on all their family trips because Alana likes to “read” it so much. We can only assume Heidi does as well.

Future Concepts for SCUBA Diving

As you know if you have read “The Sea Hunters” Dr. Cussler has been at the forefront of Scuba Diving since it’s conception. With that in mind we thought we would share some ideas on the future of diving. Check out these illustrations from the September 2003 issue of Scuba Diving Magazine.
