Frank Stewart, an observer, writer, storyteller, and lover of whales gathers the most compelling contemporary essays on cetaceans in the first anthology to bring together many of the foremost marine scientists and nature writers, including Diane Ackerman, Barry Lopez, Farley Mowat, Faith McNulty, and Jonathan White.
The essays are organized in five sections that celebrates our ongoing fascination with these fragile giants. Sharing the World of Giants contains essays inspired by being in the presence of whales, Songs from the Deep concentrates on whale vocalizations, Sightings of the Leviathan are compelling accounts of personal observations of whale behavior, Death at Sea and On Shore touch on the mystery of whale groundings and other violent encounters, and A Splendid but Uncertain Company explores teh privilege humans sense when near whales and the compact human contact has had on these glorious but gentle beasts.
