In 1973, at the age of eighteen and just out of high school, Richard Hyman drove from L.A. to the Canadian wilderness to work with Cree Native Americans building a cabin for the Cousteau team to winter in and film beavers. Months later Hyman flew to Mexico’s Yucatán and boarded the Calypso, a small and unsteady wooden ship, and from there sailed south along the 180-mile Belize Barrier Reef, filming exotic marine wildlife and a visit from singer-songwriter John Denver. On his final voyage, en route to Venezuela, Hyman experienced treacherous dives and witnessed skeletons inside shipwrecks off Martinique. A born storyteller, he will have you on the edge of your seat.
