I am Turtle.
My eyes are black, my shell is green.
Wide ocean calls me, as I lie curled in the dark.
Tides roar in my blood, surf pounds in my heart.
A lyrical journey of the life of a Green Turtle from hatchling beneath the sand of a coral beach, through wanderings at sea, to adulthood and returning to lay eggs of its own. (Source: Back cover)
