Sightings: The Gray Whales' Mysterious Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For 50 million years, the gray whale—the most ancient of all great whales—has evolved along the western shores of North America. Its 10,000-mile migration from its summer feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to its winter birthing lagoons in Baja, Mexico, represents a timeless story—one that exceeds the rational boundaries of science and speaks to many worlds, both human and cetacean.

In Sightings, celebrated Chicksaw writer Linda Hogan and acclaimed novelist and naturalist Brenda Peterson look at the rich past and divisive present of the gray whale, including the conflict between environmentalists who seek to protect the species and Native American tribes who traditionally hunt them. The authors illuminate as never before the complex and fascinating perspectives that surround this monumental migration—from tribal members, scientists, and fishermen to eco-warriors, businessmen, and historical whalers. Suffused with the authors’ lyricism and clear-eyed passion, Sightings is a revelatory, often haunting, and altogether triumphant amalgam of accessible science, compelling history, incisive anthropology, and powerhouse storytelling.

Synopsis:

In this powerful collection of "Sightings, " award-winning Native American author Hogan teams up with acclaimed novelist Peterson to document the serene beauty, mystery, and controversy surrounding gray whales as they migrate from Alaska to Mexico. 16-page full-color photo insert.

Synopsis:

Traces the migrations of gray whales between Alaska and Mexico, from their summmer feeding grounds in the Bering Sea to winter birthing lagoons in Baja, examining their history and the conflict between hunters and environmentalists.
