Giants of the Atlantic Valleys

Among the Atlantic valleys live a few races of giants, some of flesh and blood, others of wood and fiber, some living and some actually living. As a rule, most of these elegant beasts vary between 10 and 20 meters, and perform feats of impressive magnitudes: …from dives of 2000 meters – through the evanescent remains of the surface’s light tracing their choreographed fights in the depths, embraced by unimaginable pressure (and not only that psychological nature) … to the circumnavigations through constantly changing passages, chasing sunrises and sunsets, from port to port, through the paradisiacal beaches of the Caribbean,...
