American naturalist Sy Montgomery is obviously fascinated by turtles. Her voice is suffused with warmth and awe and compassion that just sweep the listener right along. Montgomery volunteers with the Turtle Rescue League in Massachusetts and gets to know Alexxia and Natasha, the founders of the TRL, as well as many turtles with excellent and hilarious names like Pizza Man, Sprockets, Chunky Chip, and Fire Chief. Turtles famously move slowly, and they can live for over one hundred years, but Montgomery is full of more quirky turtle facts--painkillers take days to kick in due to the turtle metabolism, and occasionally one is resurrected from the dead. Montgomery's pacing and enthusiasm make for a beautiful performance. Be prepared to lose your heart to the turtles just as Montgomery has.
