On a narrow strip of beach in Trinidad, a mother sea turtle comes to shore to dig her nest and deposit her eggs. Right from the beginning, the odds are against the hatchlings. Wild dogs, the rising tide, and other digging sea turtles could destroy the eggs before they hatch. The remaining baby sea turtles will scramble to the water as best they can - taking their first steps on a long and dangerous journey to maturity.

Included are the folllowing:

  • Original color photographs taken in the wild,
  • Simple, informative stories
  • A "Did You Know?" section of interesting facts
  • Complete with introduction, table of contents, and index for parents and teachers, and
  • A fine introduction to nature for preschoolers and primary readers
Color photographs and simple text illustrate the journey of a female leatherback sea turtle as she crawls ashore on the island of Trinidad to lay her eggs and looks at the first year of life for a baby sea turtle.
