Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enter the world of the honu, Hawai'i's beloved green sea turtle. Revered by Hawaiians since ancient times, these turtles were reduced to dangerously low numbers by commercial fishing before gaining protection as a threatened species under federal law.<P>Born and raised in Hawai'i, author and illustrator Patrick Ching has long admired these turtles that "fly through the sea." This book, written for readers of all ages, includes fascinating information on the natural history of the sea turtle species that occur in Hawaiian waters. It is generously illustrated with excellent photographs and Ching's own illustrations. The author's primary focus is on life history, breeding biology, and conservation of the honu, Hawai'i's most prominent sea turtle.
