October 13, 1941, St. Boniface, Manitoba – d . May 2, 2005, Toronto) journalist, author, Environmentalist and Greenpeaceco-founder. Author's First Book. The dustjacket adds : "A powerful novel f rom Canada". "In this powwerful Canadian novel, Erebus—a place of darkness halfway between Hell and Heaven —is the prairie city of Winnipeg. The twenty-five-year-old narrator, sick unto death of the stultified culture around him, has given up all ambition of conforming to the irreconcilable demands of modern life. As a kind of masochistic protest, he has taken a job in a Winnipeg slaughterhouse, a milieu Mr. Hunter describes with great power. Thenarrator and some equally disenchanted friends go on drinking binges, pick up and share a 200-pound whore, write a collective surrealist novel, and t ry to solve, in their awkward, splintered way, the problems of alienation, disgust, and loneliness that beset thpm all. One by one lowever, his friends come to terms with life. Left to his own devices, the narrator takes up with a middle-aged nymphomaniac named Nora. Their relationship turns into a wild melodrama which comes to an end after several bad arguments and an unexpected attack by Nora's murderous husband. The narrator's only escape frommayhem is an uninhabited island he has known and loved since childhood. On this island he hopes to regain a sense of himself and the possibilities of life. Erebus s is at times grotesque and shocking, at others touching and humlorous. The author, who is himself under thirty, is clearly writing for and about the often meligned and much misunderstood "under-thirty generation."

May 2, 2005, Toronto) journalist, author, Environmentalist and Greenpeace co-founder. This is the early history of Greenpeace in words and and photos, as it takes direct action to prevent the slaughter of the whales in the Pacific Ocean. "It all began with a Canadian mission to stop the underground nucleartesting at Amchitka in the Aleutians in the summer of 1971. That voyage se rved to focus world attention on the hazards of nuclear testing and broughttogether the nucleus of a group called Greenpeace which came, in time, to be a remarkably effective pressure group against the slaughter of whales inthe Pacific Ocean. In the summer of 1975 a Greenpeace crew set out on an e ighty-foot halibut seiner to confront the Russian whaling fleet off the coast of California. Their most successful tactic was to piace their Zodiac rubber boats between tne Russian killer boats and the fleeing whales, forcingthe harpooners either to hold their fire or risk hitting one of the Greenp eace crew. Because of their successes that summer, the group could send outa retired minesweeper as well as the seiner for the campaign of 1976. And by the summer of 1977, the Greenpeace message was being heard around the world. This is the story of the voyages of Greenpeace and of the whales they came to know, to love, to respect . . ." - from rear cover.
