WHALESONG introduced Hruna, a humpback whale, in an ecological parable of personal and spiritual growth. Now, in WHITE WHALE, meet Hruna's son, Hralekana, and enter a deep sea world that dazzles and delights... Embarking on the Lonely Cruise, a yearling's rite of passage, Hralekana experiences the adolescent's fear and exhilaration as he sings the Song of the Open Sea. His adventures expose him to dangerous oil spills, frightening visions of the wreck of the Titanic, a kind and ecologically concerned human whom he befriends, and finally, a terrifying encounter with the dark side of humanity... From his carefree childhood to the dramatic challenges of his adulthood, Hralekana's trials, triumphs, and laughter contain lessons on love, nature, and sacrifice, for him and for the rest of us.
