Riassunto: When twelve year old Sam Jefferson moves from Arizona to Alaska, he finds himself on the ocean coast with whales in the front yard and bears in the back. He and his brother Roy begin to explore a wilderness of breathtaking beauty and sudden danger. With a cast of eccentric Alaskans, Sam fights off a brown bear, is nearly towed out to sea by a giant halibut, participates in a hilarious woodshed play, and finally, as he and his brother confront the unscalable Killer Whale Rock, learns that courage is not merely physical. Killer Whale Rock is a tale of high adventure?and growing character.
L'autore: I live on three and a half acres near Durham, North Carolina, with a wife, Cynthia, and a dog, Blue, both excellent companions. In 1957, my father, a World War II pilot, got a job with the FAA, and our family of five (mother, father, two brothers, one sister) moved from the deserts of Arizona to the wilderness twenty-four miles north of Juneau, Alaska. Our house perched on a cliff overlooking an ocean inlet called the Lynn Canal. In our front yard were whales. In our backyard were bears. Look for Pearl Harbor north of Juneau on google maps to see it, still as it was. I have traveled the world, and still, for me, the forests of southeastern Alaska are the most beautiful place I have ever known. What else? I live beside a creek. I have beloved children and grandchildren. I am also a potter and make millefiori porcelain jewelry. Visit www.bluebusstudiostore.com to see it. What else? A whole vast life, like yours.
