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.
