This is a profound and well written book.

One of the things that irked me and made it difficult for me to fully enjoy was the use of "men" to refer to all people. This book was published in 2015 and I expect contemporary authors to have phased out this problematic practice. An easy thing to change to make the book more inclusive.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time - so good that I purchased my own copy to read again. If you live in the NW, this is a must read. Orcas are truly amazing creatures that deserve our respect. This books helps us see how we are all interconnected and how our daily actions as humans deeply affect the animals and habitats around us. When an orca dies and washes up on shore, it has to be treated as a toxic waste site because of how many toxins and chemicals are absorbed into their bodies. We can help change this by thinking twice about the products we use, the waste we produce and how we treat our water.
