Extraordinary Voyage Of Kamome, A Tsunami Boat Comes Home

Item # 150091.

Written by Lori Dengler and Amya Miller. Illustrated by Amy Uyeki.

On April 7, 2013, a little over two years after the magnitude 9 Tohoku-oki Japan earthquake triggered a massive tsunami off the coast of northeastern Japan, a lone boat washed up on the shores of Crescent City, California. The confirmation of the boat as belonging to a high school in Rikuzentakata was first step in an amazing story that has linked two tsunami-vulnerable communities on opposite sides of the Pacific and initiated friendships between high school students in Rikuzentakata.
