The Eye of the Whale: A Rescue Story By Jennifer O’Connell

On a cool December morning near San Francisco, a distress call was  radioed to shore by a local fisherman. He had discovered a humpback whale tangled in hundreds of yards of crab-trap lines, struggling to stay afloat so that she could breathe. A team of volunteers answered the call, and four divers risked their lives to rescue the enormous animal. It was the first successful whale disentanglement performed off the West Coast of the United States and prompted a rare and remarkable demonstration of animal behavior.

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
