Description

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.
