Captain Paul Watson is no stranger to controversy, but this particular conflict was more personal than most. Narrated as events unfolded, his latest book is a fascinating and thought-provoking account of a 1998 Sea Shepherd campaign to protect gray whales from slaughter by members of the Makah Nation of the Pacific Northwest who had recently invoked ancestral hunting rights. This electrifying, real-life adventure story showcases an Indigenous community at odds with itself, governments and media that advance their own agendas, and grassroots organizers who display heroic activism. Conservationists, eco-warriors, whale protectors, and supporters of Indigenous traditions—as well as anyone who simply loves a good story—will find themselves captivated by this tale.
