the girl from the sea of cortez

The girl from the sea of cortezThis is one of my favorite childhood books. I’ve read it hundreds of times. My grandmother had the Readers Digest Condensed version of it, which I have now. I was telling Rob about the story, and wondering if I’d ever read the non-condensed version. He suggested I buy a copy and find out. I found a used copy (it’s out of print) on and it arrived yesterday. I powered through most of it immediately. I didn’t realize it was by the same guy that wrote Jaws.

It’s a beautiful story about a girl and her love for the sea.
