The True Story of My Journeys With Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau and the Crew of Calypso
By Richard E. Hyman
In his personal account of expeditions with legendary French explorer Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau and the crew of research vessel Calypso, Richard Hyman takes us behind the scenes, inside the ship, and under the sea.
In 1973, at the age of eighteen and just out of high school, he drives a truck from Los Angeles to the Canadian wilderness to work with Cree Native Americans building a cabin for the Cousteau team to winter in and film beavers. Subsequent journeys include diving in Florida's warm springs with manatees and off the panhandle with stone crabs. Months later he flies to Mexico's Yucatán and boards the Calypso, a relatively small and unsteady wooden ship, and camps on an uninhabited island to study lobsters. From there he sails south along the 180-mile Belize Barrier Reef, filming the spawning of thousands of grouper and a visit from singer songwriter John Denver. On his final voyage, en route to Venezuela, he experiences treacherous dives on the USS Monitor shipwreck off North Carolina, the death of Philippe Cousteau, and skeletons inside wrecks off Martinique, not to mention close encounters with pirates and drug smugglers.

FROGMEN is an inspiring adventure of a young man who pays homage to one of the greatest explorers and visionaries of all time.
