By: Nancy Lord(Author)
Beluga Days is a wonderful evocation of the wilderness of coastal Alaska and the Native communities that still eat whale meat and depend on local foods. It is also a foray into the fascinating labyrinth of Alaskan culture, history, and politics, as the complex relationships in this unique state coalesce in a mad theater around a crisis – the decline of the beluga whales in Cook Inlet, an isolated and genetically distinct population.
Beyond its compelling characters and particulars, Lord's story offers readers a deeper understanding of the often uncomfortable, often rewarding, juxtaposition of humans and the natural world.
Mountaineers Books's reprint of this book adds a new preface by the author.
