About the Book

Title: The Sand Dollar

While walking on the shore of the Sea of Cortez a man has a remarkable dialog with the sea. Using the naturally occurring dove like structures found in sand dollars, the sea relates its past wars with the sun, the wind, the mountains, and the moon and addresses its ongoing war with man. The sea's explanation of the need for the fifth dove is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression with readers of all ages.


Title: The Crab

A lively crab that loves to dance.  A well-intentioned man dedicated to helping the loveable creature. What could possibly go wrong? This second Legend of the Sea of Cortez explores unintended consequences of sincere but misguided conservationism. Learn how the crab and the man become lifelong friends who truly understand and appreciate one another.

In The Crab, author Michael Woodworth delivers an important environmental message in a colorful and entertaining story written for all ages. Likewise, the illustrator, Morgan Ferland, captivates the reader by bringing the words to life.
