Long before others shared her interest--or even believed that women could work in such fields--Eugenie Clark dove into zoology and dedicated herself to the study of sharks. In a career that spanned almost seven decades, Dr. Clark established herself as an expert in the field, earning the nickname "Shark Lady" for her explorations and discoveries. Fellow zoologist Jess Keating offers an optimistic biography of Clark, modeling for young scientists how a passion for learning and a commitment to one's path can lead to an extraordinary life. Includes facts ("Shark Bites"), a timeline, author's note, and bibliography. (Seven to Ten) ~ Kit Ballenger
