Congratulations to local author and friend of the Elizabeth Taber Library, Peter C. Stone, on the publication of his latest book, Waltzes with Giants, The Twilight Journey of the North Atlantic Right Whale which is a selection of the Children’s Book-of-the-Month Club!
Waltzes with Giants, The Twilight Journey of the North Atlantic Right Whale (Science/Nature) is a moving portrait of one of earth’s largest endangered mammals. Mystical and provocative, it is inspired by a real North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) and her threatened migrations from Atlantic Canada, to her calving grounds off the coasts of Georgia and Florida.
Praise for Waltzes with Giants (Skyhorse, September 2012)
“I am just blown away by Peter C. Stone’s Waltzes with Giants. He has captured the story all so well, so tragically, so beautifully…”
– Amy Knowlton
North Atlantic Right Whale Research Scientist, New England Aquarium
“In Waltzes with Giants, Peter C. Stone uses the capacity of human imagination, the power of poetic language, and the tactile beauty of paint to convey the heartbreaking story of the North Atlantic right whale. It vividly beckons us to learn through the heart as well as the mind.”
