Before Eugenie Clark's groundbreaking research, most people thought sharks were vicious, blood-thirsty killers. From the first time she saw a shark in an aquarium, Japanese-American Eugenie was enthralled. Instead of frightening and ferocious eating machines, she saw sleek, graceful fish gliding through the water.
After she became a scientist -- an unexpected career path for a woman in the 1940s -- she began taking research dives and training sharks, earning her the nickname "The Shark Lady."
"Lang's wonder-filled narrative makes for an inspiring tale of a successful female scientist, with a decided emphasis on her successes…An excellent addition to any collection, particularly those looking to expand their stories of women in STEM." -- School Library Journal
