His brand-new book, "Mocha Dick: The Legend and the Fury," is illustrated by Randall Enos.

"Most of my books are about wild animals, sometimes?endangered species, and their fascinating and unique abilities to survive in harsh and unforgiving environments," Heinz said. "They are tales of adventure and survival, and I try to capture the majesty of each animal and its environment in my words."
