Chasing at the Surface
Sometimes finding your way home takes more than courage. It takes a leap of faith.
"Chasing at the Surface" tells the story of a young girl s courage and the healing power of nature. After her mother unexpectedly leaves home, twelve-year old Marisa struggles with her feelings of loss and abandonment just as a pod of nineteen orca whales mothers with their new calves following a run of chum salmon become trapped in the enclosed inlet near her Northwest home. Marisa s journey to help the whales find their way home brings her to a new understanding of the assaults humans have had on nature, and the complicated meaning of family and home."
