About this book

Take an intimate look at the marine creatures dearest to us: our fellow sea-born mammals-dolphins, porpoises, and whales. Joining superb nature writing with spectacular photography, Gentle Giants surveys 80 species, explores their mysterious origins, and examines the amazing qualities cetaceans have in common with people. Finally, their awesome power to heal is revealed in the context of their complex, and ironically often painful, relationship with humans.
