When a boy named Max finds a limp, frozen Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle washed up on the shores of Cape Cod, it appears to be dead. But maybe not.
Award-winning author Karthryn Lasky and photographer Christopher G. Knight take young readers on a riveting tour that begins on the icy shores of Cape Cod, where expert teams attempt to revive a Kemp's Ridley, and ends on the warm beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, where turtles of this rare breed are born and may return to lay eggs of their own.
This book features the story of a turtle who spent time at The Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Florida.
