The Hidden World of Sharks

A group of traders huddles around a pile of dried shark fins on a gleaming white floor in Hong Kong. A Papua New Guinean elder shoves off in his hand-carved canoe, ready to summon a shark with ancient magic. A scientist finds a rare shark in Indonesia and forges a deal with villagers so it and other species can survive.

Along the way, she reminds us why, after millions of years, sharks remain among nature’s most awe-inspiring creatures.
