In 1940 John Steinbeck and his friend Ed Ricketts (the original 'Doc' in 'Cannery Row') undertook a six-weeks fishing trip to collect marine specimens in the Gulf of California, The expedition lead to Steinbeck's 'Sea of Cortez'. After Rickett's death in 1948, Steinbeck wrote down everything he could remember about his extraordinary friend (scientist, philosopher, eccentric). The resultant 25,000 word profile is here published with the narrative, non-technical portion of 'Sea of Cortez' - becoming a high-spirited adventure, with a touch of science.
