With a half-mile of swimming to go, Lynne realized that a baby gray whale was swimming with her. Lynne had been swimming for an hour, and she needed to get out of the water to rest. Lynne also realized that the baby whale may follow her to shore where it would surely die. The immature whale was in the middle of an8,000 mile-long migration and needed its mother for sustenance. If Lynne didn't find the mother, the baby would starve to death. 'Grayson' is the amazing, and true story of what happened to Lynne and her whale friend.

    “This book is as autobiographical as it is biographical . . . a book that juxtaposes two adventurers, one with her own challenges still unfolding and the other with his position fixed in history . . . a book worthy of the centenary celebration of Amundsen’s trek to the South Pole.”—San Francisco Chronicle Today the North and South Poles are home to research stations and film crews, but just a century ago they were forbidding lands seldom seen by human eyes. Those who journeyed there were the last true explorers, and one of the most successful ever was Roald Amundsen. Known as “the last of the Vikings,” the Norwegian-born Amundsen began his career of adventure at age fifteen and by forty had become the first man to successfully navigate the Northwest Passage, and to reach both the North and South Poles. As a girl, Lynne Cox read of Amundsen’s exploits, which inspired her to follow her own adventurous dreams of open-water swimming. Here, she gives an account of Amundsen’s life and expeditions while detailing her own experiences swimming (without a wetsuit) in the same polar regions he first explored. At once a biography, history, and memoir, South with the Sun holds something for any lover of adventure. “Not to miss . . . It's fascinating to read about the Norwegian hardman through the eyes of Cox.”—Outside
