Otis and Will Discover the Deep--the Record Setting Dive of the Bathysphere

Otis and Will Discover the Deep--the Record-Setting Dive of the Bathysphere by Barb Rosenstock and Katherine Roy tell the true story of the intrepid explorers Will Beebe and Otis Barton. In 1930 they bravely made the first deep-sea dive below a few hundred feet, encased in a metal sphere designed by Otis. There were numerous things that could have gone wrong but they made it to the “deep” and saw marvelous sea creatures for the first time. This is a gripping adventure tale, all the more engrossing since it really happened. (Non-Fiction)
