Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

The great white shark rushed straight toward Eugenie, its mouth wide open. The shark's mighty jaws crunched down on steel bars, a few inches from Eugenie's face. She pressed against the far side of the steel shark cage only to feel another great white shark's nose poking through the cage at her back.

It was 1979 and Dr. Eugenie Clark had come to Dangerous Reef in South Australia to study the great white shark up close. Of all the different kinds of sharks, the great white is the one that strikes the most fear in people's hearts.

Underwater, Eugenie and David were in two separate cages side by side, only ten feet apart. Eugenie had brought her own camera. The great white sharks charged and pounded at the two cages. The cages shook! Steel met steel as sharks more than fourteen feet long kept charging at them. One minute the cages clanged together. The next minute, a shark charged between them and the cages were knocked apart.
