Book Description

A young pup sea lion struggles to swim to a boat dock, barely able to breath or move his flippers. In May of 2009 a young California Steller sea lion was found in the Noyo river at Fort Bragg California all tangled up in duct tape. This story, based on actual events, is about his rescue, the long road trip to the Marine Mammal Rescue Center, his care and release and then his long scary journey back up the dangerous northern California coast to his home in the Noyo river. His encounters with Great White sharks, Killer whales and passing fishing trawlers and discovers a lot about him self. It's a 140 mile swim for life for this six month old fifty pound pup sea lion in only four days.The reader can follow Duc's journey on any California map. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An educational bookfor all ages. November 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought the book because I went to highschool with Brad Caylor so I was extremely curious to see what he and his family put together. The book was an absolute delight to read. I'm 71 years of age and I can't wait until I read the adventures of Duc to my grandchildren. A book for all ages because of it's educational value. Hope to read about more adventures of Duc in the future.

This is a delightful book for children to learn how animals have to learn the hard way how to survive. With the help of kind, caring humans young Duc comes through his encounter with ocean waste thoughtlessly thrown away by less thoughtful humans. The illustrations are charming also. Duc looks quite fetching in his goggles! A friend of mine is going to use this book in teaching her special ed students using her iPad. I'll never see another seal head popping up in the ocean without thinking of Duc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational yet Fun and Easy to read! September 12, 2011

What a wonderful and educational book for children who love animals! It makes you aware of the dangers that marine life face on a daily basis due to the pollution (garbage) in the ocean. It feels as though you are right along side Duc throughout his treacherous journey up the California Coast! We loved it! I hope there will be a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun story and educational too! September 11, 2011
By Marie
Format:Kindle Edition
As a parent, I loved reading the story of Duc to my son! We enjoyed reading about Duc's adventures around Noyo Harbor and the fishing boats. While reading the book, you can easily envision Duc on his escapades along the coast and his journey back home. I appreciate the way the author educates the reader about ocean pollution and the dangers to marine life. The book was wonderfully written and appropriate for any age!
