Among Whales by Roger Payne

How can we understand the language of whales? How will the evolving composition of seawater affect life on earth? Why do whales sing? Roger Payne has listened to the whales haunting songs for most of his adult life and taught us to listen too. Hes swum with them. Hes fought for them. Hes studied them and become the worlds foremost cetacean biologist. Sharing his scientific observations in spellbinding detail, Payne brings vividly to life the awesome presence of these great, noble -- and desperately threatened -- creatures. A work of biology, of philosophy, and most certainly of literature, Among Whales is more than a book about whales. It is also a journey of the heart, a journey of discovery about the larger questions of life on earth. Passionate in his love, Roger Payne is also passionate in his outrage at the whalers who slaughter whales for profit and at the pollutants that are destroying our oceans. His words shimmer with truth; his ideas strike powerfully at our consciences. Destined to become a classic, Among Whales is a book of great beauty -- a cautionary tale every one of us who cares about our planet must read.
