Review by: irene scott on Jan. 16, 2013 :
a beautiful story of the dedication of two australian conservationists. as someone living in the Solomon Islands, i thought the book was a great reflection on the culture here as well as providing some interesting insight into the history during the tensions.

makes me want to hug a turtle!!
