The BookBig Miracle
by Tom Rose
Also available in audiodisc

The real story behind the remarkable, bizarre, and often uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, 1988, an Inuit hunter found three California Gray Whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature's way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Rose compellingly describes how oil company executives, Greenpeace activists, Eskimos, businessmen, and military officers heroically worked together to save the whales.
