As these few remaining whales (some 350 from a population of hundreds of thousands) traverse the east coast of the Atlantic, migrating down to St. Augustine FL to give birth and up to Canada to feed, they hug the shoreline although they are difficult to spot. This puts them at the highest possible risk from human beings in the form of ship strikes, entanglement, sonic blasting etc.
Peter Stone has created a work of art that both engages and informs the casual reader, and, as well, provides in depth educational opportunities for the classroom.
The tragic story of this species is told from the point of view of the whale and the information is conveyed in language that is gorgeous and science based at the same time. A nearly IMPOSSIBLE feat.
Is there hope for the future of these gentle ancient creatures?

A MUST HAVE for every classroom!
