Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Kristin Bell, Ted Danson and John Krasinski, Big Miracle is the story of an event that took place in 1988, when an Innuit hunter near Barrow, Alaska, found three gray whales trapped in the ice. Their plight soon captured the hearts of people everywhere. Would the magnificent mammals die? Author Tom Rose, who was among the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention, now brings readers to the edge of their seats as he recounts how oil companies, environmental activists, Inupiat people, small businesses, the U.S. military—and two formidable nations led by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev—joined together to help free the whales.
