"Saga of the Sea Turtle"
As promised, here is the e-mail address where you can contact the grandson of Blackie Cruz (Edison Cruz, Sr.): firstname.lastname@example.org
They call the book "just a family thing", but it is a unique look back at the life of a young fisherman in the early to mid-1900's. There is a wealth of information about sea turtles in the language (and tales) of a boy mesmerized by them and whose fascination lasted a lifetime.
For those interested in contacting the Cruz family: cost of the book is $19.95, plus $2.00 for shipping and handling.
