An accident at sea in 1992 proved that the ocean currents are connected. When a cargo ship dropped a bathtub-toy-filled container into the Pacific, the little quackers bobbed along the globe’s waterways, coming to rest on beaches near and far. This fictionalized account of the event is accompanied by maps charting the toys’ travel pattern, a glossary, and a summary of the highly publicized incident.
