The book, 'Mama & Asha,' is based on the true story of a gray whale and her baby taking refuge in the Klamath, California, river in the summer of 2011. It's a tenderhearted story about the love between a mother gray whale, her baby, and the people who watched them dance and swim and roll in the river.
