Stone, an author, educator, and artist, tells the story of a North Atlantic right whale, inspired by a female whale named Arpeggio chronicled in the New England Aquarium North Atlantic Right Whale Catalog and the people who worked to protect her threatened migration routes along the eastern US and her calving grounds off the coasts of Georgia and Florida. He uses storytelling and color paintings to imagine her sensations, encounters, and migration and illustrate the wonder, sorrow, and conflicts associated with the species, including conservation and the effects of hunting, shipping, and active-sonar testing.
