Synopsis: Payne, an activist, romantic, explorer, and musician as well as the world's leading expert on whales, embraces a rich variety of subjects and disciplines in his presentation on the state of our knowledge about whales, touching on biology, sociology, cultural mythology, philosophy, and literature. He considers questions concerning the evolving composition of seawater, whales' songs, and the purpose of the human brain. The appendix offers a primer of ocean acoustics. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From the Inside Flap: nderstand the language of whales? How will the evolving composition of seawater affect life on earth? Why do whales sing?

Roger Payne has listened to the whales' haunting songs for most of his adult life and taught us to listen too. He's swum with them. He's fought for them. He's studied them and become the world's foremost cetacean biologist.

Sharing his scientific observations in spellbinding detail, Payne brings vividly to life the awesome presence of these great, noble -- and desperately threatened -- creatures. A work of biology, of philosophy, and most certainly of literature, Among Whales is more than a book about whales. It is also a journey of the heart, a journey of discovery about the larger questions of life on earth.

Passionate in his love, Roger Payne is also passionate in his outrage at the whalers who slaughter whales for profit and at the pollutants that are destroying our oceans. His words shimmer with truth; his ideas strike powerf
