The Rescue of Nanoose (Touchwood $12.95) by Mary Borrowman and Chloe O'Loughlin is based on the true story of a humpback whale that was freed near the boardwalk community of Telegraph Cove on September 23, 1994 after it became entangled in a rope that had fallen off a fish boat. Captain Mike Durban of the Blue Fjord swam to the whale in his wetsuit and cut the rope with a knife. Mary Borrowman lives in Telegraph Cove where she and her husband Jim have operated Stubbs Island Whale Watching for more than 25 years.
