Summary

During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, a forty foot tidal wave washed over the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport, Mississippi. The buildings were crushed and the dolphins that lived there were swept from their tanks and into the Gulf of Mexico. After growing up in captivity under the care of their trainers, how could the dolphins feed and protect themselves in the wild? And if they could survive, would their trainers ever see them again? Yan Nascimbene illuminates this extensively researched account by Janet Wyman Coleman with his fine lines and color washes as we witness the true story of how these eight bottlenose dolphins survived one of the most devastating natural disasters in the history of the United States of America-Hurricane Katrina. The backmatter includes more facts about each of the eight dolphins and a scrapbook of photographs taken by the trainers themselves.
