About this book

For centuries, we have been fascinated by the sperm whale – the world's largest-toothed predator. Now you can experience an intimate underwater journey to connect with these majestic and gentle goliaths.

Inspired by a life-changing childhood experience, Gaelin Rosenwaks set off on a journey to tell the story of sperm whale families through photography and film. In the waters off Dominica, she observed – eye to eye – the close bond between mother and child firsthand. What she found is that these animals live in matriarchal family units made up of remarkable females that stay together for generations. Like elephants and humans, they take care of one another.

Rosenwaks's years as a marine biologist, diver, and underwater filmmaker and photographer prepared her to tell this beautifully stirring story with never-before-seen photographs of the world's most marvellous ocean species.

Media reviews

"With deep reverence and curiosity for the sperm whale's existence, the author, marine scientist and photographer Gaelin Rosenwaks traveled to one of the few places where they can be seen by humans: the 'Kool-Aid' blue waters off of Dominica in the Caribbean. [...] Rosenwaks witnessed them diving for squid a mile beneath the surface, sleeping (vertically!), grooming, nursing, at play."
