From the Publisher:

A compact guide and inside account of pioneer whale research in Canada and temperate US waters, illustrated by the premiere whale illustrator Pieter Folkens and written by author and whale researcher Erich Hoyt. Canada is one of the few countries of the world bounded by three oceans, and so we meet an extraodinary diversity of whales and dolphins from the Arctic belugas, narwhals and bowheads and the popular humpback, gray and blue whales to that top predator of the sea, the orca or killer whale. Biological profiles are provided of each species as well as a story of the research, and a distribution map. Archive photos of whales and whaling add to the background and recall a time when the human relationship with whales was mainly at the end of a harpoon.
