Guardian of Fukushima : the true story of a farmer who fought to save the nuclear zone's animals / written by Fabien Grolleau ; illustrated by Ewen Blain ; forewrod by Roland Kelts.
"It was March 11, 2011 when a massive earthquake triggered a devastating tsunami, which, in turn, destroyed the core three reactors of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. This tragedy cost almost 20,000 lives and devastated countless more, including Naoto Matsumura, a farmer evacuated from the deadly radiation zone. Unwilling to abandon his beloved animals, Naoto chooses to return home to his farm -- and to fight for the beauty of life. This important graphic novel from France alludes to Japanese legends as an ode to Mother Nature, and human resilience"--Provided by publisher.
