Elgin, OR (January 2005)
– Just released is a new book about Keiko, the orca
whale who starred in the movie, Free Willy. Keiko
Speaks: Keiko’s True Story Based On His Communications
With Bonnie Norton is a chronological
account of their conversations from 1997 through 2003. Although
a gallant attempt was made to return him to the wild, Keiko
repeatedly communicated his desire to be with people.
From Keiko’s perspective, hear how
he felt about being set free, his words of wisdom about
people and animals, and his “Message To The World.”
Because so many of Keiko’s communications
were later publicly validated through his behavior, this
book has the potential to positively change both our reality
and the way many people view animals. Keiko touched the
hearts of millions of people worldwide, and people of all
ages will want to read his never-before-told true story.
Norton is a professional Animal Communicator
and her work with Keiko has been documented on numerous
radio and television news programs since 1998. She devoted
most of the last five years to trying to let Keiko’s
wishes be known with the hopes that one day he might be
allowed the life he so desired.
Jeff Foster, Keiko’s trainer for
five years, describes the book as “Well-written, accurate
and comprehensive. It brought back some very fond memories.”
