About this book

More than simply a book on whales, while this is a work of biology - cetacean, marine, and human - it also embraces notions of exploration, sociology, cultural mythology, philosophy, and even literature. By seeking answers to questions of cetacean biology, Payne manages to address the larger question of life on earth. A classic.
`This lyrical, sprightly, long-awaited first book by Roger Payne is such a treat. Rich with facts, lore, and insights about whales - the majestic `cloud-like beings' he has devoted his life to - the book is also a beautifully written appeal to our dozing consciences, as well as a touching autobiography. Unique, visionary, and unforgettable' Diane Ackerman
