Exxon Valdez Summary

Exxon Valdez by John Townsend

The oil tanker Exxon Valdez carried enough crude oil to fill 125 Olympic-sized swimming pools. In March 1989, it collided into underwater rocks. By morning the blue ocean had turned black, and the air was thick with the stench of oil. Within a day, dead fish littered the shore. Sea otters feebly tried to lick their filthy fur clean. The Exxon Valdez disaster had just begun. Timelines, a glossary, ideas for research, and suggestions for future reading are included in this gripping read about this tragic disaster. This book highlights the dangers of environmental pollution.
