The Beachmaster by Tom ShachtmanBEACHMASTER: A STORY OF DANIEL AU FOND, by Tom Shachtman. Illustrated by Jamichael Henterly.

“The sections of the book that stand out are those that illustrate the pleasures and perils of a sea lion’s life …. The description is memorable … the author is able to evoke strong feelings of compassion for the animals [and to make] a clear moral distinction between the violence done to sea creatures by man and the violent struggles among sea creatures…. Readers will finish the novel with an understanding of the crucial difference between sport and survival. Like the ocean itself, the story is full of life.” New York Times Book Review
