The Windward Road, published in 1956, made history. When Archie Carr began to rove the Caribbean to write about sea turtles, he saw that their numbers were dwindling. Out of this appeal to save them grew the first ventures in international sea turtle conservation and the establishment of the Caribbean Conservation Corporation.
In addition to sea turtle biology, Carr recorded his general impressions, producing a natural history sprinkled with colorful stories.
