Freeing Keiko : the journey of a killer whale from Free Willy to the wild by Kenneth Brower ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Captured as a calf off the coast of Iceland in 1979, the killer whale who would become Keiko was soon sent to an amusement park in Mexico City, where he languished in a tank too small, in water too warm, received an improper diet--and was soon beset by a vicious skin virus. But after he starred in director the hit film Free Willy in 1993, Keiko gained international celebrity as the most famous marine mammal in the world. With the help of a dedicated team of environmentalists and the deep pockets of an eccentric billionaire, he was rescued and installed in a facility designed to prepare him for a return to the wild. He would ultimately return to his native Iceland where a team of keepers would attempt to release him, making the cinematic story that had captivated the world's children a reality.--From publisher description

Hetch Hetchy : undoing a great American mistake by Kenneth Brower ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 1920's the thirsty city of San Francisco reached deep into Yosemite National Park to build the O'Shaughnessy Dam on the Tuolumne River, diverting one-third of the river's water and flooding the Hetch Hetchy Valley, said at the time to be as magnificent as Yosemite Valley itself. Brower envisages the species-by-species reclamation of the valley by its native flora and fauna as wildness flourishes again. Offering viable alternatives for restoration, Brower's Hetch Hetchy is both an exploration of the pitched battle over an environmental tragedy and an inspiring reverie of a possible future
