AbstractHistoryArchive Description

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)
