Orcas Around Me: My Alaskan Summer by Deborah Page (Author), Leslie W. Bowman (Illustrator)

Taiga Page (a young boy named after an Alaskan forest) describes his life along Alaska's southeaster coast with his family trolling for salmon. Taiga and his brother Ryland spend a summer helping their parents on their fishing boats. Sometimes he'd help his mother on her boat, or help his father on his larger boat. The book shows how the boys interact with the natural world that is both beautiful and sometimes frightening. They catch and clean fish, pump the bilge, meet sea lions, otters, porpoises and a cluster of orcas.

Included is a wildlife glossary.
