PLYMOUTH, MA, August 29, 2014— Local author Heidi Mayo’s book NELSON TELSON – The Story of a True Blue Blood is a middle grade novel with many lessons for young and old alike. Readers take away concepts such as the interdependence of all living things, the need to sustain our environment, and the importance of selfless giving.  In that spirit, Mayo, with help from Powder Horn Press, has donated numerous copies of her book to Plymouth Intermediate Schools, Rising Tide Charter Public School, Duxbury Middle School, Duxbury Bay Maritime School, and South Shore Charter School.

When shy and lonely Mariah Miller finds a magic spearhead on the beach that enables her to talk to a wise old horseshoe crab, she travels through time and space and learns many lessons.  Nelson the horseshoe crab shares the wisdom of the ages, and along the way we learn just how important horseshoe crabs are to the survival of many species including our own. Horseshoe crabs thrived on this planet for over 455 million years without human interference. Now they need our protection. Mayo’s work supports the Ecological Research and Development Group of Dover, Delaware whose sole purpose is to stabilize global horseshoe crab populations. The author encourages people to shop through smile.amazon.com choosing Ecological Research and Development Group as their charity, so proceeds with benefit this important work.

MEET THE AUTHOR—Among Mariah’s many adventures on the shores of Duxbury and Plymouth, she visits the first Thanksgiving and learns much about the People of the First Light – the Wampanoag. You can meet the author right there at the Plymouth Farmers Market at Plimoth Plantation, 137 Warren Avenue, Plymouth, MA on Thursday, September 18 from 2:30 to 6:00 for a special book-signing event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Plimoth Plantation.
