This book is so new it doesn't even exist yet. No cover, no words, no nothing. Just a bunch of fragments floating around in the author's mind.
Maybe the first line will be something along these lines:
"Mexico is a far away. Whether you are starting from Seattle or New York or Denver, Mexico is a long way away. For the sea turtle cruising off the coast of Japan, it's even farther. Four thousand miles is a long way to swim to bury a couple of hundred eggs on the warm beaches of Bahia de Los Angles on the Sea of Cortez. But every time the urge to reproduces comes along, that's exactly what the loggerhead turtle does."
Or something like that.
If you are reading this, Cooper and I may already be on our way to Bahia de Los Angeles. There's a man there called Antonio Resendiz. He's been studying sea turtles since the late 1970s. He doesn't know we're coming. There's no email service in Bahia de Los Angles, at least that I know of. I've searched the internet for communication links, but have come up empty-handed. I hope he's there. Forty years of studying sea turtles. Can you imagine the stories he has to tell? I can't either. That's why Coop and I are headed south,
