"For 50 million years gray whales have migrated 10,000 miles along the western shores of North America from their winter birthing lagoons in Baja, Mexico, to their summer feeding grounds in the icy fertile waters of the Bering Sea. Twice hunted to the brink of extinction[...]." - from the dust jacket. This lyrical and beautifully written book celebrates the gray whale. The authors also address the three-way collision pitting this endangered species, the whaling community, environmentalists and the native community that has re-asserted their traditional right to hunt the grays.
