A must read for all ages !,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Great Penguin Rescue: 40,000 Penguins, a Devastating Oil Spill, and the Inspiring Story of the World's Largest Animal Rescue (Hardcover)
This book is touching in that it has been written by the Author expressing her own experiences during the biggest wildlife rescue to date ! I was part of that rescue as well, and re lived all the things that happened in Cape Town 10 years ago, and keep on happening world wide.. Its a message of courage, endurance, love and tenacity. Written in such a touching way, so real, that it was 'unputdownable', put tears in my eyes at times, and I just had to finish it. It also carries a warning of what can and unfortunately keeps happening worldwide in our oceans, the threat of oil spillage and the destruction of habitat for sea life !
It also shows what humanity can do on a voluntary basis when disaster strikes, what people can achieve when they stand together and confront a disaster head on ! Yes, we CAN make a difference, we must and we will, always !
It will make a great gift, to friends and family, or to yourself.. The book is displayed prominently in my book case, and keeps reminding me of an excellent read, and soon I will read it again.. Very much recommended indeed...
