Red Light to Starboard (Paperback)

Recalling the Exxon Valdez Disaster
Angela Day

Red Light to Starboard documents a story that stunned the world—recounting how futile warnings, regional and national history, as well as failed governmental and public policy decisions led to disastrous environmental consequences in a spectacular, fragile ecosystem. Valdez native Bobby Day’s intimate portrayal lends a local perspective and conveys the damage suffered by individuals, communities, and the fishing industry.

Tapping a poignant local voice yet still providing national and historical context, Red Light to Starboard depicts the catastrophe that stunned the world and devastated a spectacular, fragile ecosystem and its bordering communities.
