Sail­ing around the San Fran­cisco Bay har­vest­ing seabird eggs, Yao Bai just wants to spot a whale. But the ar­rival of com­peti­tors turns the peace­ful trip into a fight for sur­vival. In­spired by the nat­u­ral won­ders of the Far­al­lon Is­lands and true tales of pi­rates, min­ers, and ex­plor­ers, Yao’s story is rich in his­tory, cul­ture, and leg­end, set in the heart of the Chi­nese im­mi­grant com­mu­nity amid the craze of the Cal­i­for­nia gold rush.
